WORK is due to start soon on building a new £153,000 headquarters for Camberley West Guides' Company.

Surrey Heath Council has paved the way by agreeing a new 21-year lease for the site at Crabtree Park.

National Lottery bosses would only agree to hand over a £123,600 grant if the lease was signed.

A further £5,000 has been pledged by the Frimley Fuel Allotments Charity, and £2,000 by the council.

The company intends to build its new headquarters on the site of its present hut which is well past its sell-by date.
