It is managed by the ‘Friends of Bell’s Box’ - a sub group of the 79th Sheffield Scout Troop, which is now hosting a fundraising evening to pay for its restoration and refurbishment.

A spokesman for the troop said: “Cubs often spend their first night away from comforts of home at Bell’s Box, learning map-reading skills, hiking and star-gazing in non-light polluted conditions.”
