Suspension of face-to-face activities

Given government advice, all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events are suspended from Tuesday, 17 March 2020. This suspension applies to young people and adults, and will be until further notice.

We will continue to respond to the developing situation in the appropriate way. We will continue to follow official guidance. The safety of everyone involved in Scouts, both young people and adults, is our number one priority. That is always at the heart of our decision making.

Scouting at home

We are sharing activities for young people to do at home with their parents if families. These are being shared with you from our parent portal (OSM). Please contact your section leader if we can provide any help or support for you or your children.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
