GSLs Weekly Challenge #2

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 #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 […]

Great news! Just a few quick reminders from me: You’re going to get (or already have had!) quite a few emails from […]

No longer a member or leaving us? Please see the bold text near the bottom. Dear parents and carers I hope the return to school has been successful and everything is settling down. I’m really pleased to finally be able to say we’re back! Well, at least in a limited fashion. Cubs will be the first section to return to face to face sessions, beginning on 15th September. Due to the size of the Cub pack and number of leaders we have, along with the required ratios, we have to split the Cubs into three groups – so will be meeting every three weeks. Cub parents will receive an email invite from Parent Portal (MyScout) for the week that is […]
