Return to Scouting


Dear Parents and Carers,

Scouting UK have set out a policy for the return to face-face scouting and have different levels to what kind of scouting can be done. When at Red only online scouting is allowed, which we have been doing over the past months.

In England that level as now been reduced to Amber, which means we can meet in small groups outdoors, but not before each section has provided policies on returning and risk assessments on how we will manage running the section under the Covid-19 guidance.

For the section leaders to do this we need accurate numbers on who will be returning to the Group to ascertain how best this can be achieved. Attached to your email is a letter explaining this in more detail and asking for each person, including all leaders, to fill out the questionnaire using the link on the letter.

Once we know who will be returning, they will be sent a copy of the risk assessments and also from September the Group will be starting up Subscriptions again. A separate email and instruction for this will be sent towards the end of August.

The leadership team, wish to give a massive Thanks to all who have continued to support them during the lockdown period and they look forward to seeing many of the children in September, in the meantime, continue to stay safe, take care and enjoy the extra long summer holidays.

Yours in Scouting
