Return of Face to Face Scouting

   |   By

Hello Explorers!
We bring good news, ScoutsCymru have announced that we can resume face to face scouting from the 27 March! 
Here is the plan: Fiery Dragons will be meeting OUTSIDE from next week (2nd April)

  • We will run our normal weekly programme outside 
  • We wont be taking a break for the Easter holidays (the timings for the meeting during Easter [9th] may change to a daytime meeting)
  • We will run f2f as long as we can and look to continue scouting throughout the summer (TBC)

As with the last time around there are a few restrictions:

  • Face to face Scouting sessions for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers can be run outdoors only in one fixed location
  • There is no limit to the number of adults or young people that can attend an outdoor session
  • Outdoor sessions should be for one, individual Scouting section. Multiple sections or Groups mixing together should be avoided
  • Social distancing of 2 metres must be adhered to for all those aged 11 and upwards
  • Where social distancing cannot be adhered to face coverings should be worn by everyone aged 11 and upwards
  • Outdoor sessions must be in one fixed location. Undertaking a walk / hike / expedition or similar is not permitted
  • Visits, trips or residential activities are not permitted

With this in mind expect another email from us during the week with the risk assessment and information about what we will be up to on Friday
If you would like to attend on Friday please let me (Joe) know via email! 
Many Thanks 
Joe Fletcher (On Behalf of the FD Leadership Team)
