2020 is proving to be an unprecendented year for Scouting.
In March, face-face Scouting was suspended for the first time ever by our parent organisation The Scouting Association meaning that as a Scout Group we have been unable to do all the things we love doing.
Well, we've been unable to do them in the usual ways, but as Scouts, we're never ones to be beaten, so we've rolled up our sleeves and used our spirit and resilience to turn a negative into a positive.
We've had to learn new ways of Scouting, helping others, and even how to run virtual camps and campfires!
We've met online, we've done scavenger hunts, we've cooked and cleaned.
We've camped indoors and outdoors.
We've run a virtual campfire.
Our Young People earned over 100 badges during the Lockdown period.
And now we are planning a phased return to face-face scouting from September.
For more information about the guidelines we are working to, please feel free to access the detailed information provided by The Scout Association.
Scouts in England are currently operating at Amber level. We are pleased to confirm that our risk assessment for this level has been approved, and so we as a Group are also operating at Amber level.
