At time of writing we are slowly getting back to some proper meetings with our young people. Beavers, cubs and scouts have all held face to face meetings. One of the main tasks was to present all the badges that have been earned over the lockdown. We have awarded two Chief Scout bronze awards to beavers and two Chief Scout silver awards to cubs. Our District Commissioner came along to help with the presentations. Many of our young people and many of our leaders have chosen not to come back yet. This is completely understandable and we hope to see them back soon, when life is more settled. We are restricted in numbers and are working hard to ensure sensible distancing so they don’t feel like normal meetings yet. 

November is a time when we always look forward to joining with the rest of our community at the remembrance service. The parade through the village and our part in the service are real high spots for us. We don’t know yet how we will mark the day this year but we will ensure that scouting never forgets. 

Our leaders are doing a wonderful job keeping things going. We are still short of help. If you think you could help out please contact me.
