Coronavirus Update

Dear all,

As Scouts, wherever we go and whatever we do, we put our member’s safety and wellbeing first.

As you will be aware, the Novel Coronavirus, COVID-19, is an evolving situation and a difficult time for all of us and our families.
After listening to our volunteers, the decision has been taken to suspend all weekly section meetings for an indefinite period of time (from today, March 16th)

This includes Monday Beavers, The Group Camp meeting & Explorers which were scheduled for this evening.

We are not, at this stage, cancelling Group Camp. However we will continue to monitor the situation and give you an update as soon as possible.

We will continue to provide updates to parents, supporters & volunteers as the situation develops.

Please get in touch with us if you have any questions.

Many thanks,
Brian Martin (Group Scout Leader)
Peter Ritchie (Group Chair)
Andy Loudon (Assistant Group Scout Leader)
James Gallagher (Assistant Group Scout Leader)

Skills For Life

‘Creating the strategy’
12/08/2019
For volunteers

Each week, almost 200 young people develop skills for life while enjoying fun, friendship and adventure at our scout group.
To continue to grow and in order to prepare our group and our Young People better for the future, we’re creating a strategy.

The purpose of the strategy is to look at all we do, from the content we post on social media to the support that is given to volunteers.
From this review, we’ll create simple goals to help us improve. 
Everyone will be welcome to get involved with creating our plan.
Feedback from young people, parents, supporters and volunteers will be at the core of shaping our future.

Creating the strategy
The stages involved:
1 – Inform volunteers
2 – Ask volunteers for areas they feel would benefit from featuring in the strategy
3 – Planning the review (such as a survey for parents, conversations with leaders etc…)
4 – Starting the review
5 – Collating feedback
6 – Creating goals (simple goals for the next 5 years)
7 – Strategy agreed upon
8 – Strategy published (physical copy for volunteers)
9 – Strategy followed!
