Important update for our Groups

Given new guidance from the Prime Minister, the Scouts have suspended all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events for the time being.

Sadly this means we will be closing our Centres and some Events, including Fundays (June) and Gilwell24 (July) for the duration of the suspension.

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.

What do you need to do next?

We'll be communicating to specific audiences about group bookings, courses and event cancellations directly. We'd ask that you wait for this information to be sent out rather than contacting us immediately, due to the volume of enquiries we are currently receiving.

Government advice

The Government's Coronavirus (COVID-19) webpage is frequently updated as things develop, so please check it regularly at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

We are reminded to follow the Public Health England advice:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

Keep Calm and Carry on

In the meantime, take a look at the Scouts website for ideas on keeping Scout programme going and on how we can show our true scouting values by supporting each other and our communities.

We’d like to thank you in advance for your patience at this busy time and most importantly we look forward to welcoming you to Scout Adventures very soon.
