As we plan the return to face to face Scouting, we must ensure to do it in a save manner in line with the government guidelines and the Scout framework.

We have now been advised we are at Amber Readiness level. This means groups, including adults, of up to 15 young people and 5 leaders can meet both outdoors and indoors, adults are able to move between these groups, adults must wear face coverings unless they are leading an activity.

The group has carried out an in-depth risk assessment and taken necessary steps to minimise any risk and make the return to face to face Scouting as Covid secure as possible.

When we will meet:

  • Scouts will meet each Tuesday in two groups from:

7:00-8:00 & 7:30-8:30pm

Each group will have a maximum of 15 young people and minimum of 2 adults.

Scouts must wear face coverings indoors, including when using toilet facilities.

  • Cubs will meet each Wednesday in two groups from:

7:00-8:00pm & 7:15-8:15pm

Each group will have a maximum of 15 young people and minimum of 3 adults.

  • Beavers will meet each Wednesday in two groups from:

5:30-6:15pm & 5:45-6:30pm

Each group will have a maximum of 15 young people and minimum of 3 adults.

What you need to do:

  • Read the Risk Assessment (Click Here to View) and give consent that your young person can return and to the best of your knowledge you and your young person will comply with the risk assessment.
  • Arrive on time for drop off and collection.
  • Use the toilet before coming to meetings to minimise meeting interruptions.
  • Wash hands before leaving and when returning home from meeting.
  • Try to walk to and from meetings.
  • If anyone in the house has any symptoms of Covid (high temperature, new continuous cough or loss or change to sense of smell or taste), self-isolate and do not attend meetings.

Anyone who has not given consent or is not expected at the meeting will not be able to take part in the meetings and may be asked to leave.

If you have concerns about a vulnerable member returning please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or speak to a leader to talk about any appropriate adjustments to ensure they can still engage in Scouting.

This Action Plan may be updated as necessary, any changes will be communicated.
