Further to the announcement by the Government on Monday 16th March 2020, the Scout Association has issued the following announcement.
All face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events must be suspended from tomorrow, Tuesday, 17 March 2020. This suspension applies to young people and adults, and will be until further notice.
As a result all section meetings and events for the foreseeable future are cancelled, however the Group are now meeting weekly online using video conferencing. Activities include fun, games, cooking, craft, badge work and showing off each other’s talents.
We hope everyone stays safe and well and follow the guidance around symptoms of Covid-19 and self-isolation where appropriate. There may be long periods where families are at home together. During this time you might wish to consider working towards Activities badges for your section. These can be found on http://scouts.org.uk and the Parent Portal of Online Scout Manager.
Whilst we are in challenging times and we should look to support others where we can (as per our Scouting values), if helping neighbours and friends, especially the elderly, please make sure that you do this in the safest possible way, and don't put anyone at further risk.
Please share any Scouting activities and badges that you do at home on our Facebook pages to encourage others and show them what you have been doing.
Take care of yourselves.
