Dear parents and carers I hope you’re all doing OK with Lock-down 3. It certainly feels different to the last two and will hopefully be the last… let’s hope at any rate. I haven’t written for a few weeks as I need to make sure everyone reads this one carefully. 31st January is the annual census of UK Scouts. This is where we re-register the Scout Group as an official member Group of UK Scouts and record the number of individual members we have, which in turn determines the insurance requirements, etc. From this, we are then billed an annual membership fee per member, which is around £45 each by UK Scouts and Kent County Scouts (Folkestone & Hythe District Scouts […]

***LOCKDOWN 2 SPECIAL*** Weekly update #27

Dear parents and carers I hope you all had a great half term break despite the weather. It certainly went quickly for me! This new term brings with it different challenges to the last with a new lockdown on its way, albeit slightly different this time with schools still open which has created a little uncertainty around Scouting. We’re due to hear from The Scouts nationally any time now, however I met with our team of volunteers over Zoom yesterday and we’ve made some decisions and put a plan in place, regardless of the outcome of the national direction. In a nutshell, I am suspending face to face Scouting once again. I’ve done this to protect our members and do […]

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 #26

Dear parents and carers This week sees us make it to half term. One term of a strange normal down. Thanks to everyone, parents, young people and our leadership team, for making the return as smooth and safe as it has been. It’s been great to see the young people back in action and enjoy a programme – even if it has been a bit odd! As we get to the natural break that is half term, we’ll be talking with parents of those young people who are at the right age (or just a bit over now!) to move on to the next section. We’ve held off for a while to help everyone settle back in before making that […]

Weekly update #25

Dear parents and carers Another week goes by and all is going well as we head towards half term. Trustees have discussed the subs situation once again and have agreed that while we’re meeting in a sporadic form, we’ll continue to keep subs at the reduced rate of £6 per member per month for November and December. We’ll keep this under review and let you know about January onwards well before the end of this year. On the topic of subs, if your account is not up to date, we’d really appreciate it if this is either brought up to date or you get in touch with us. If you no longer wish to keep your place, please let us […]
