COVID-19 News Bulletin #8 – 27th May 2020

As we move into yet another month of restrictions there is little sign of an early return to normal scouting activities. Whist online scouting helps our young people continue to have some contact with scouting activities, it is at this time of year that many of us would be heading off for more adventurous activities. We can at least make plans for events and adventure for that magical time when normal service resumes. You can follow our news and ideas at https://www.suffolkscouts.org.uk/coronovirus.  All content we post will be based on UK Government and The Scout Association guidelines. Our Facebook and Twitter pages will be updated with pictures and videos of what our young people are up to regarding Scouting.
