Surbiton Sea Scout Group have enjoyed the use of Raven’s Ait for 25 over years. Conditions have been attached to the island’s sale or lease; future occupiers should accommodate the Sea Scouts on Wednesday and Friday afternoons.
Liberal Democrat councillor Barry O’Mahony has welcomed support for Surbiton Sea Scouts staying on Ravens Ait:
“Raven’s Ait is clearly a fantastic asset for this borough. The Council wants to support its continued use by community groups, and I am delighted that the Sea Scouts, who help young people training to sail and canoe, should be accommodated by whoever next takes over the island.”
