GSLs Weekly Challenge #3

We know that not everyone can come back to their section meeting each week due to the numbers restrictions we have to adhere to. So, to keep everyone involved, I’ll be setting a weekly taskmaster challenge, courtesy of South London Scouts, for all sections to try. Have a go and don’t forget to share with us using the form at the bottom of the page. -Craig, Group Scout Leader

Weekly update #23

Dear parents and carers What a week that was! Three out of the four sections back together in action. For the first time since March, all sections had some form of activity in the same week. A few very excited, but very exhausted leaders and the consensus that it’s GOOD TO BE BACK! Thank you to all the young people and parents for sticking to our new code of conduct – you’ve all been brilliant and helped keep each other safe. Hopefully everything will now continue and will only get better. I know that some sections are tweaking plans to hopefully enable more young people to join in more regularly and will let you know details in due course. We’re […]

Weekly update #22

Dear parents and carers We made it! Our first face to face meeting since March went off without a hitch last Tuesday – thank you to Akela, Bagheera and the Cubs for making it a success. It was lovely to see the young people in person again and have an evening of new (socially distant) games, which everyone loved. This week it’s another Cub bubble (bubble 2) meeting at Jock’s Pitch along with the first session for the Beavers (the older ones) at the hall. Explorers are meeting on Zoom this week and the Scouts return to face to face activities on Friday with all the Scouts meeting, albeit for a shorter session, in two separate groups, again split by […]

Weekly update #21

Dear parents and carers Well, we’re so very nearly there…. Tuesday marks the return of the first section to face to face Scouting since March with Cubs Bubble 1 meeting at Jock’s Pitch on the East Cliff above the Warren. We had a bit of a wobble in the week with the Government’s change to the rules and sizes of groups, however, The Scouts quickly received clarification from the National Youth Agency confirming we were exempt as a voluntary service offering after school clubs for children with a ‘Covid Secure’ approach to returning to face to face activities. Great news! Just a few quick reminders from me: You’re going to get (or already have had!) quite a few emails from […]
