Scouting Suspended Until Further Notice

16 March 2020

Covid-19 Coronavirus update 16th March

The Prime Minister has said that everyone in the UK should now avoid non-essential travel and contact with others.

Suspension of face-to-face activities

Given this guidance, Scout HQ & District have said that all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events including camps must be suspended from Tuesday, 17 March 2020. This suspension applies to young people and adults, and will be until further notice.

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.

Please follow us on Facebook and this website for updates, or contact your Section Leader or GSL Kevin Heydon via the contact us page or OSM
