Colleen Godsell and the million dollar barn

Over a five year fund raising frenzy, Colleen Godsell raised more than one million dollars to preserve the Mosman scout hall which otherwise would have become yet another block of townhouses in the harbourside suburb.

But Colleen’s steely resolve in the many battles with governments and other authorities has meant the home of Australia’s oldest scouting troupe – known as the “The Barn” – has been fully restored and is back on the community assets list. This is the story of a woman who firmly believes in preservation of our heritage.

ABC Sydney has Colleen Godsell’s story.
