Suspension of Scouting

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 16th March, The Scout Association has taken the decision to suspend all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events with immediate effect.  This currently includes the hiring of our marquee and minibus for 2020.  

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 Scouting can resume.

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