The long-awaited Fire Safer Refuge, first announced several years ago, is now under construction. This state of the art building named Seeonee Refuge, will provide us with a magnificent training, meeting and activity centre at Woodhouse in the area known as the Training Field. This building is being built to Bushfire Attack Level 29 and will provide a refuge for up to 280 people as a last resort and place of refuge in a bushfire situation. This $1M building is being funded by the entire proceeds of the sale of Seeonee Hills ($535,000), a generous Grant from the Government of South Australia ($395,000) and the sale of some shares ($70,000). The expected completion date, weather permitting, is early June. It is important that we recognise that we have been able to fund this building without impact on funds set aside for Scouting. We thank our CEO Dan Ryan and General Manager, Woodhouse, James Sellers for the excellent work they have done to bring this project to fruition.
