Suffolk Scouts: COVID-19 News Bulletin #4 – 17th April 2020

Dear Suffolk Scouters,

Thank you for your continued support. Can I ask that you check in with volunteers who may be more vulnerable at this time and find out if they require assistance. A Scout is friendly and considerate.

St George’s Day 2020

St George’s Day – Thursday 23rd April 2020

I hope you are all joining in with the ‘clap for carers’ each Thursday evening. On St George’s day, 23rd April, please will everyone put on their uniform, all beavers, cubs, scouts explorers and leaders, and show our thanks to all those key workers.

COVID-19 News Bulletin #3 – 8th April 2020

Disclosure Checks

If you are not already aware, Headquarters have taken the decision to suspend disclosure applications during the current situation. This is to reduce any additional workload for the Disclosure and Barring Service as they concentrate on processing key workers. If volunteers have a disclosure that expires during this time, they do not need to be suspended (even though the e-mails will still be received) and can continue with digital scouting in their existing roles. New adults should NOT be added during this time.


Scouting from Home – #AdventureContinues

Hi All,

Hope you are keeping well and safe.   

Our Suffolk Scouts Team has setup #AdventureContinues Challenges.  If anyone wants to participate please feel free to do so. The idea is that new challenges will come out every 2 weeks.

As part of our #AdventureContinues programme we’ve developed a number of challenges you can do at home. 

Please celebrate and post any challenges you undertake on social media using the #AdventureContinues #18thIpswichScouts or email us your photos at:
