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.

If in doubt, ask your section leader or a Scouter.

Much of the Group’s success is down to the hard work of the leaders, who give of their time freely to plan and run weekly meetings, camps and other activities. They are supported in that work by the Group Executive Committee which is responsible for maintaining the Scout Hall and providing the camping and activities equipment used by the sections.
