The Scout Association has announced that face-to-face scouting activities will cease from tomorrow until early December, see statement below released this afternoon.
This is a shame but not unexpected, hopefully your Beaver / Cub / Scout / Explorer has enjoyed the wonderful activities our amazing leaders have organised this term.
Your leaders will be in touch with regards to any updates to the programme for the rest of the term, please bear with us whilst our leaders re-group during which time there may be a bit of a pause in the programme, hope you understand.
Any questions of concerns please contact myself or your Section Leader.
Keep well and stay safe.
Yours In Scouting
Andy, Group Scout Leader 1st Harpenden
Following the announcement of a four-week lockdown in England from Thursday 5 November, the National Youth Agency (NYA) has now issued guidance about what this means for all youth sector activity. From tomorrow, Scouts and all other youth activities will move to Red readiness level.
This decision by the Government means that there can be no face-to-face activity with young people or adult volunteers. Only online meetings can be delivered until further notice.
