Suspension of Scouting

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of a four-week lockdown in England from Thursday 5th November, The Scout Association has taken the decision to suspend all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events with immediate effect.  We expect these restrictions to last until 2 December, when the lockdown is currently scheduled to end in England.

We will continue to monitor and re-evaluate the situation based on the Government and Scout Association guidance, and will keep you all updated about when face-to-face Scouting can resume.

We hope that all of you, and your families, remain well and look forward to resuming Scouting later in the year.
