Enquin Assist Local Scout Group

Enquin recently undertook an Asbestos Survey of the High Cross Community Hall and adjacent church building (formerly known as St Anne’s) in High Cross, Newport on behalf of 28th Newport Scout Group.

The Scout Group have held meetings at the site for 80 years and were facing the prospect of becoming homeless when the Archdiocese advised that they would be closing the church. Thanks to a lot of hard work and commitment from the Scout Group the site was secured for continued use by the group and the High Cross community.

The Scout Group is currently in the process of taking over the running of the site and in order to ensure the buildings suitability for continued community use some minor improvement works are required. Enquin Environmental were delighted to facilitate this by completing a full asbestos survey of both buildings free of charge.

Suzanne Foster, Senior Asbestos Consultant at Enquin said:

We were delighted to be able to assist the Scout Group with an Asbestos Survey and we really look forward to hearing how the site develops to become a valuable community asset.
