England has now moved into Stage 4 of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown. Scouting in England is still at the yellow readiness level, but there are fewer restrictions on the number of people who can gather at meeting places and on camps.
As the government is relaxing Covid-19 restrictions, Scouting is opening up more and more. We’re now at “yellow” readiness level, which won’t mean too many changes on the surface in Davenham, but it is another step on the road between Zoom meetings and full resumption of face-to-face Scouting.
All of our sections are now back up and running! We’re meeting outdoor only for the time being, mostly at Peckmill Scout Wood. Section Leaders will let parents know the arrangements for each section directly.
Today, the UK Scout Association moved to Amber readiness level. That means that Section Leaders can run outdoor activities with appropriate measures in place to limit the spread of Covid-19.
At 1st Davenham, we’re getting our Covid-19 risk assessments ready for the summer term, so we can run as many outdoor meetings as possible after the Easter break.
All face-to-face scouting in England is currently suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Section Leaders will contact parents directly when we are able to run face-to-face activities again.
In the meantime, we’d like to say a big thank you to all the parents and young people who have continued to support us through our Zoom meetings.
