Since March 2020, the group suspended face 2 face meeting, activities and camping, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.
From July 2020, we started up our online Zoom meetings with at least 50% of the young people engaged in games badge work.
However, by Christmas our numbers had dropped to around 20% attendance.
January 2021, as per the National Scout Association, we informed parents regarding the renewal of membership fees, due in March 2021.
Parents were asked to confirm their child’s membership and continue with Zoom by completing the online renewal form so we wouldn’t be charged for young people who were dormant in the group. We only had a 10% take up of the original group number.
We will continue to delivery Zoom Scouting to the current members, however, the group will remain closed to new members until such a time that we can return face to face meetings.
