Scouts may sell HQ

The Barbados Boy Scouts association might very well be considering a change of location.
And while no decision has yet been made, one of the “options” on the table for the cash-depleted organisation might be the sale of its Hazelwood, Collymore Rock, St Michael headquarters property.
This was revealed by Chief Commissioner Dr Nigel Taylor during Tuesday’s annual general meeting. He told the media that while it had not yet been discussed, it remained a possible option.
During the meeting it was disclosed that the property, which the Scouts have called home for the past 50 years and which had been valued at just over $1 million in 2001, had now grown to worth $5.8 million.
“All things are possible. The reality is that I cannot make a determination on such a serious topic as that would have to go to the executive, as well as through a feasibility plan and some analysis as to where we will go and what we will do,” Taylor explained. (RB)
