Nottinghamshire Scouts regret to announce that their charity shop on the High Road in Beeston will not re-open following the end of ‘lockdown’.
We would like to thank all of our valued customers who have supported this charity shop over the past 9 years, either by purchasing items or donating items for sale. We really appreciate the support you have given to Scouting.
We would also like to thank the many volunteers that have helped to staff the shop over the years for their time and support.
If you would like to continue to support Scouting in Nottinghamshire, our Sherwood charity shop at 606 Mansfield Road, Sherwood, Nottingham hopes to be able to open again later this year once circumstances permit. We will advise you on this page when the Sherwood shop re-opens and hope to see you there at some time in the future.
Thanks again, and please keep well by keeping safe.
Leaders in SW Notts District are busy working on a scheme which will enable Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts to gain activity badges and challenge badges whilst weekly meetings are suspended. We are calling this #SofaScouting.
Youth members will be set tasks which they can either do at home or on-line which will ultimately lead to the award of badges which from part of our #SkillsforLife training initiative.
We plan to announce this via Groups in the very near future.
More information will follow soon! Watch this space for more information.
Important information for the families of all young people who are members of Scout Groups (Beavers/Cubs/Scouts) and Explorer Scout Units
On Monday 16th March 2020 the Prime Minister announced that that everyone in the UK should now avoid non-essential travel and contact with others.
Given this guidance the UK Scout Association has announced the nationwide suspension of all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events with effect from Tuesday, 17th March 2020. This suspension applies to all young people and adults involved with scouting, and will be until further notice.
The safety of everyone involved in Scouts, both young people and adults, is our number one priority and is always at the heart of our decision making.
We ask for your support and understanding as we ‘do our best’ to support the actions being taken by the Government in an attempt to contain the current coronavirus outbreak in the UK.
We will update this information on this website as the situation develops.
