Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Following the change in readiness level by The Scouts, we are now back at at RED (FROM 26th December 2020). Readiness Level. For the latest updates, please check out our dedicated page by clicking here.
As of tomorrow Scouting in England is back in to Amber and due to the low numbers attending the online meetings we will return to face to face meetings for the next three weeks. The district team has been notified we are returning within our three bubbles and with the same covid risk assessment we submitted at the start of the face to face meetings.
The meeting dates are as follows:
Bubble 1 – Friday 4th December
Bubble 2 – Friday 11th December
Bubble 3 – Friday 18th December
I will send out all the emails and invites through OSM (Online Scout Manager) for the parents/carers to fill in as normal, Scouts once again must supply their own drink within a name container, use bathroom facilities at home before coming to the meeting if possible and must wear a mask or face covering while maintaining social distancing. Please mention to all other parents/carers that you know to check their email and spam boxes as there are a few that never open any emails sent out.
Whilst there are many challenges for us all at the present time, Scouting is starting to learn to live with the new normal. Hopefully we will have a mild Autumn allowing us to make the best use of the great outdoors. Thank you for your continued support of Scouting in Suffolk.
Thank you for your continued support. We have a selection of useful information for you this week. At the present time we have no idea when Scouting in Suffolk will return to normal but we do all need to pull together in groups and districts to ensure that we are ready when we get the green light to resume Scouting in whatever form that takes.
We know that our members are as disappointed to be missing out on face to face scouting as much as our volunteers are missing running the fabulous programmes they had planned. While this enforced closure is in place during these unprecedented events, our fabulous team will be putting together ‘remote scouting’ activities for our members to do at home on this page. Everything we put here will count to some badge, somewhere.
Keep an eye on your Parent Portal Page as badges appear showing progress towards gaining even more awards. Keep calm and carry on Scouting!
