Good afternoon parents and carers

Following an update which I have received from The Scout Association, taking effect today, 2 December 2021, the youth sector moves to the Yellow readiness level and the following changes apply:

Anyone aged 11+ must wear a face covering when indoors, unless they are exempt.

This includes Scouts, Explorers, leaders (who are not actively leading activities) and visitors to the centre (parents).

For everyone’s safety, we will return to greeting young people at the main door at the start of the meeting and dismissing them from the main door at the end of meetings as we see parents. Please can I ask that parents/carers return to waiting outside at the start/end of meetings as we did previously. Only enter the building if you really need to discuss an issue with the leaders. Everyone will continue to be asked to sanitise hands upon arrival and departure.

Obviously none of us want to see the return of additional measures, however, it is in the best interests of all our safety and hopefully we will be able to avoid having to return to virtual meetings!

I will write again when I receive any further updates or information.

Best wishes


Group Scout Leader
