Greenwell Point Community Seeks Help to Connect

June 15, 2022

By Carol Williams

Greenwell Point is a small village in the Shoalhaven well known for its oysters.

It also has a strong community that is working to provide access to an unused scout hall in our village for a much-needed family friendly space to bring the community and visitors together.

We have established a non-profit association to create the Greenwell Point Village Hub. We have been advised by Scouts NSW that they no longer need the scout hall due to lack of numbers for scouting in our village. The hall was built by the community with volunteer labour and funds raised by the community for building supplies. The land was donated by a local resident who has since passed away. His family are very supportive of the community having the hall back.

We are frustrated with Scouts NSW due to their lack of responses to the many emails and phone calls we have made. We are asking for the hall to be transferred to the community. We have applied for a government grant to make improvements to building access and to undertake a building inspection and need support from Scouts NSW to make improvements to the hall for community use.

We are hoping to bring this issue to the attention of anyone who can help us resolve this issue for the community and for Scouts NSW so that we can start creating our village hub. For further details join the Greenwell Point Village Hub Facebook group.
