MONDAY MARCH 16th
We received a communication from our UK Chief Commissioner this evening in response to today's statement from the Prime Minister. In short all face to face Beaver, Cub and Scout activities are to stop until further notice. This includes weekly meetings and weekend camps and activities.
It's too soon to say how long this will last and how it will impact camps and activities we have planned for the future but we will update parents as and when the situation changes.
Coronavirus has already had an impact on our Scouting A Month ago it was a topic of discussion amongst the Scouts with tongue in cheek accusations being thrown at anyone who coughed. By last Thursday things had changed and there was barely a comment when we asked them to all to wash their hands thoroughly before entering the Scout Hall.
We are sure the Scouts in particular will look forward to the UK Chief Commissioner delivering on his threat to provide "activities for young people to do at home with their parents if families are faced with self-isolation" Structured Scout Homework! If Parents are looking for something different to Occupy the Scouts, then I am sure we can provide some ideas. Which Scout will be first to email the leaders a picture of them having tied a man-o'war sheepshank
