Following changes in Government and National Youth Agency guidelines and discussions between these two bodies and the Scout Association, we have been informed that we can now re-start face-to-face meetings with our young members.
Initially, these meetings must take place ‘outdoors’ but we are expecting an announcment in the next few days which will hopefully enable small groups of young people to meet indoors again later in the month. We are keeping our fingers tightly crossed!
If you have a young person in your family who is a Beaver, Cub, Scout or Explorer Scout and have not yet heard from a member of the leadership team we encourage you to check with your Group/Unit contact to ascertain what is planned for the next few weeks. Some Groups have already held some outdoor ‘taster’ meetings. Others are not anticipating re-starting meetings until the new school term begins.
All actiivities will takeplace within a COVID-19 risk-assessed environment as we strive to ensure all our members, both young and not so young, stay safe and well.
