Dear Parents,

                     Great News. Following the Government's announcement of its roadmap out of lockdown, the Scout Association has confirmed that from week commencing 29th March we will be moving back to the Amber readiness level. This allows for the following:


  • From 29 March, we will be 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, we will be allowed to take part in non-residential day trips and visits.


The Scout Association is also working with the Government on longer term plans for camping and larger group sizes and we expect these to be introduced steadily throughout the summer.


At present our leaders are currently discussing the details of how we will meet outdoors from the 29th of March, but I can already confirm that we will be looking to return to Selwood School following the Easter holidays on Thursday 22nd April. Once we have more details regarding these proposed meetings we will send out another communication,



 Kind Regards,




 David Hoare
