Scout Programme 2020

During these unprecidented times, we have to adapt to changes which can make it difficult for everyone to stay active and involved every week. We understand that everyone may not be able to attend our Zoom Meetings each week.


With this in mind we are putting resources packs, and activites for all our young people here. This will allow anyone to catch up with anything they may have missed. We do heavily advise that the young people to attend the meetings if possible as this will allow them to work with everyone and keep social and a sense of belonging.
