Building work is due to begin on a new community centre for Scouts and Guides in Warrington.
The £295,000 project will replace existing Scout and Guide huts on Pepper Street in Lymm.
One complete, the new building will become the headquarters for 17th Warrington East (3rd Lymm) Scouts and Lymm District Guides.
The existing huts will be demolished, as they are no longer fit for purpose. The new building, which will keep the name of the current Guide hut Maple Lodge, will feature two halls, a meeting room and a kitchen.
It will provide facilities for Rainbows, Beavers, Brownies, Cubs, Guides, Scouts and Explorers, as well as other community groups.
Funding for the project has come from several sources including Lymm Round Table and Lymm Parish Council.
WREN and The Veolia Environmental Trust also awarded grants of £70,000 and £35,000 respectively through the Landfill Communities Fund.
Building work is due to begin on February 24 and is expected to be completed by July.
James Hurrell, 3rd Lymm Scouts leader, said: "The new building will not only benefit the Scouts and Guides, but also the wider community.
"The village hall, youth club and Oughtrington Community Centre are all fully booked and have had to turn away enquiries. We have already heard from groups expressing an interest in using the new building.
"The new HQ will provide a modern, accessible meeting place within 100 metres of the centre of Lymm that can be booked by community groups and individuals. We cannot wait to see it complete and in use."
Paul Taylor, executive director of The Veolia Environmental Trust, said:
"We have awarded over £642,192 to community and environmental projects in Cheshire over the last five years and it is always great to hear when one is getting under way. I look forward to hearing about the project's development over the coming months."
