Virtual meetings to the rescue!

Posted on March 21st, 2020 by Sam Raby

It’s sad but its true! Scout meetings face to face have been suspended until further notice. But that isn’t going to stop us…. Oh No! We have taken to video conferencing to host our meetings and so far it has been successful.

We did a round the house scavenger hunt with our beavers.


We met with the cubs and did a Q&A session on the Emergency First Aid badge.

And we took to https://skribbl.io/ with the scouts.

Don’t forget there is loads you can do at home. Simply log into OSM and have a look at your badges. You can upload your evidence right there as well. Check out our how to video:

We have also put some workbooks online for you to have a look at:

Scouting & COVID-19

Posted on March 17th, 2020 by Sam Raby

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have been asked by The Scout Association HQ to Suspend all scouting meetings as of Tuesday the 17th of March, until further notice. This comes after the government’s announcement today to reduce and avoid all un necessary travel and meetings.

Meeting Subs

In order to cover the annual membership fee, we often ask for £1.50 for every meeting that you are unable to attend. We would still look to collect this for the weeks whereby we are unable to meet. This would be collected upon return to normal activity.

What about Events?

The Scout Association has informed us that all large events have also been suspended.

Beavers – Beavers Sleepover

Cubs – Fundays 2020 has been canceled. Mud Run 2020 has been postponed.. CAT202 Camp in May we do not yet know about it.

Scouts – currently no upcoming events

ALL – Group camp Planned for September may also be in Jeopardy.

NB: We will confirm what happens with refunds as more information develops.

What happens next?

As we have always said, Scouting is more than just a meeting at the hall, Scouting is part of everyday life. Simply because we are unable to meet, doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the activities scouting has to offer.

Below are links to a set of workbooks for each section, these include badge information, activates and tasks that you can work on at home in your spare time.

Scouting Via Video Chat

We are considering using an online meeting tool, as other scout groups are also doing, to host shorter video-based meetings at the same time as our regular meetings.

We are looking into using https://zoom.us/ A free meeting tool that allows you to join without an account, from most devices (PC, Mac, iOS, Android)

These meetings would be no longer than around 30mins. We would suggest that you as a parent are present or in the vicinity of your child during these call’s

More than one leader would be present at each meeting as is the case with any regular meeting.

During these meetings, we would cover questions and queries around the attached activity workbooks and any other questions and badge related activities.

More information on this will be available if we decide to go forward with it

Government advice

The Government’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) webpage is frequently updated as things develop, so please check it regularly at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Going Forward
Please ensure that you all take the necessary precautions and take note of advice given by the government and the NHS. Please continue to ensure you are washing your hands regularly.

We as leaders have been regularly cleaning, disinfecting the hall and regularly touched surfaces to minimize the risk.

Should you have any questions or queries, please contact us via email or the dedicated WhatsApp groups.

We will continue to keep you updated as information develops.

Stay safe & Stay Healthy.

Yours in Scouting

The Leaders

Toasty hands on a cold night!

Posted on February 21st, 2019 by Dani Marney

The Scouts tried their hand at a bit of sewing and made some lovely hand warmers. We will be finishing them off next week and will post the pdf here if anyone wants to have a go at home! We even had some chocolates to share round as we said goodbye to one of Scouts moving to Scotland. We wish her all the best in the future! #iscout #jointheadventure #skillsforlife

The 14th are at the Panto!….” Oh no they’re not!”

Posted on January 5th, 2019 by Sam Raby

Tonight more than 60 members, leaders, parents and friends, piled onto a bus and made their way to the Kenneth Moore Theatre to enjoy this year’s panto, Aladdin.

The group thoroughly enjoyed themselves, especially our oldest leader, Bob, who found himself overwhelmed with audience participation.

We would like to thank all of the staff, performers and crew at the Kenneth Moore Theatre for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. They even mentioned and thanked the leaders for organising such a large group.

Scouts “Catch a Bus” through history

Posted on June 11th, 2018 by Sam Raby

The Scouts took a guided tour around the Depot Museum to see some a small sample of the Buses, Trams and Trains that were used within London to transport passengers around and to test out some of the carriages seating.  It was very informative and exciting.  After a quick pit stop at Covent Garden for lunch. They then moved onto the London transport Museum, to learn how the transport evolved as London grew.  Finally on the way home via Liverpool street, the Troop stopped for a well deserved Ice cream before heading Home.
