9th September 2020

Beavers, Cubs and Scouts will soon be back!

Hello everyone!

We hope that you have enjoyed a good summer and managed to get away for a week or two.

Schools will be back soon and we will follow shortly after. Here are the details which are subject to a relaxation in the current Coronavirus restrictions. If we cannot meet face to face in the Church Hall or outdoors, we will still meet on-line by Zoom!

Please check your emails and Facebook in case we need to make any last minute changes.

We will observe all the necessary Coronavirus precautions and ask parents/carers/young people to do the same. Please maintain social distancing on arrival at the Church Hall. We will be operating a one-way system so when you bring your young person to the Church Hall please enter by the door on Albion Street and exit by the back door into the private car park off Harriett St. At the end of meetings, please enter the hall from Albion Street to collect your child and exit by the back door to Harriett Street. All young people are requested to bring their own labelled sanitiser, in case of any allergies. We will not be providing refreshments but young people may bring a labelled water bottle. Young people age 11 years and above must wear face masks during all indoor meetings, government guidelines.

Beavers: We wish to thank Joanne and Alan for standing in as temporary Beaver Leaders for the virtual Colony Meetings on Zoom. We are very pleased to announce that Joanne has very kindly taken on the role of Beaver Scout Leader and will be assisted by Alan plus Paul, Abigail and Liam!

Beavers will resume on Wednesday 9 September 2020 from 1800 to 1900 hrs for indoors face to face meetings and outdoors. Zoom meetings will be from 1815 to 1900 hrs

We are looking forward to a joint Space Camp Weekend with Cubs plus plenty of nights away adventures, a visit to the Fire Station, a trip to the amazing Science and Industry Museum in Manchester and a brilliant Bat Walk!!

Cubs: Please note that Cubs will change their meeting night from Fridays to Wednesdays and resume on Wednesday 9 September 2020 from 1910 to 2015 hrs for indoors face to face meetings and outdoors.Zoom meetings will be from 1915 to 2000 hrs

Our exciting plans for Cubs include a joint Space Camp Weekend with Beavers, various walks and hikes plus a trip to Manchester Airport Visitors Park and an evening at the Planetarium near Todmorden!!

Scouts: Please note that Scouts will now start 45 minutes earlier on Fridays. Scouts will resume on Friday 18 September 2020 from 1930 to 2030 hrs for indoors face to face meetings and outdoors. Zoom meetings will be from 1930 to 2000 hrs

We are planning some Torchlight Troop Nights at Towneley plus a challenging Winter Adventure Weekend and we will focus on the Chief Scout's Gold Award for older Scouts!

As a Scout Group, we have had to postpone the Group Camp for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts originally planned for 25 September 2020 at Bispham Hall to September 2021 as residential experiences are not permitted at the present time. We hope to arrange an Outdoor Adventure Day for everyone as soon as it is practical to do so!!

We also hope to have an Open Night fairly soon and may include some Bingo too!
