Following the announcement from the National Youth Agency (NYA), we can confirm that Scouting in England will be moving back to the Amber readiness level from 29 March.

  • From 29 March, we will move to Amber with Groups allowed to meet outdoors in group sizes of 15 plus Leaders (5 maximum).
  • From 12 April, both outdoors and indoors meetings will be allowed in group sizes of 15 plus Leaders (5 maximum).
  • From 12 April, you’ll be allowed to take part in non-residential day trips and visits.

As a group, we have decided to STAY ONLINE ONLY until 12th April as outdoor only meetings at this time of year are likely to be rained off or very cold for the kids. This also gives us a little extra time to get the hut back up and running after the long shutdown.
