COVID Update

6 January 2021

I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas break.

As you know we had hoped to resume face to face Scouting this month in a COVID secure manner, however with England now in lockdown this puts the UK Scout level back to RED which means no face to face meetings are able to take place. I know for many of you this will be disappointing, however we must do our part in the fight against this pandemic.

As planned all sections will resume from the Christmas break next week, however this will be virtually via Zoom for a little longer. I would expect the UK Scout level to remain at red until at least half term, inline with the schools however as soon as this changes we will be in a position to start meeting face to face once again.

If you have not already let us know your intentions for returning to Scouting or if this recent lockdown changes what you previously told us, please complete our return to Scouting survey. You should find a link in your emails.

I would like to thank you once again for your continued support during these difficult times. We are due to submit our yearly figures to headquarters this month and pay our annual census which is by far our largest bill of the year so your subs payments enable us to continue as a group. Please remember if you are struggling to pay subs due to COVID please do get in touch as we do have a reduced rate for those suffering financially. If you have recently moved sections or were previously on our reduced rate you will receive a reminder to set up your payments in the next few days.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me

Yours in Scouting

Jane Fraser

Group Scout Leader
