WORK started at Shaldon this week on a quarter-of-a-million pound dream home for sea scouts.

It has been a long time coming, but later this year the River Teign Sea Scouts 1st Shaldon – the largest group in Teignbridge – will move into their new headquarters on The Ness.

The group have enjoyed great support and popularity since re-forming in 2008, slowly building from an original 12 Beavers to 108 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts.
