COVID-19 Information

As we move towards the approach of learning to live with COVID-19, we have outlined a number of actions that will take to help reduce the risk of spreading the virus between members.


Where appropriate, we will endeavour to meet in an open outdoor space for scout meetings and activities. Where this is not possible or appropriate, we will ensure that our indoor venues are well ventilated with all possible windows and doors open.

Good Hygiene

We will continue to implement advance hygiene measures at all scout meetings and activities. Hand sanitiser stations will be present at entrance/exit points. Members are encouraged to sanitise on arrival, departure and throughout activities. Disposable tissues and waste bins will be present in all venues.


All venues are regularly cleaned with surfaces being wiped down using safe disinfectant solution. Resources used for games and activities will be cleaned before use and throughout use when being passed between members.

Symptoms/Positive cases

Any member with symptoms of a respiratory infection, including COVID-19, and a high temperature or who feel unwell should stay at home and not attend any scouting meetings or activities. Members who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 5 days should not attend scouting meetings and activities.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
