Hedge End's 13th Itchen North Scouts and Wildern and District Guides is facing a funding crisis.

The group could lose a £260,000 Lottery grant if it does not meet a £39,000 shortfall in its new headquarters development scheme.

The Lottery board has said it will not free up the cash to get work started at the Woodhouse Lane site unless the full funding is in place.

Tonight, the project's overseers will find out if they have been successful in a bid to Eastleigh Borough Council for £17,000.
