COVID-19 update – Important please read

16 March 2020

We have been waiting news from National headquarters following the announcements made earlier. The email has just come through and states:

“Late this afternoon, the Prime Minister has said that everyone in the UK should now avoid non-essential travel and contact with others.

Suspension of face-to-face activities

Given this guidance, all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events must be suspended from tomorrow, Tuesday, 17 March 2020. This suspension applies to young people and adults, and will be until further notice.

We must continue to respond to the developing situation in a calm, measured and appropriate way. We will continue to follow official guidance. The safety of everyone involved in Scouts, both young people and adults, is our number one priority. That is always at the heart of our decision making.”

Stay safe and we will be in touch when we know more about our meetings and planned events.

If you have any questions, please email skip@the42nd.co.uk and we will do our best to address these.
