The government has announcement that England will be subject to a four week lockdown from the 5th November. Accordingly, The National Youth Agency has changed the readiness level for the youth sector to Red.
This decision by the Government means that there can no longer be any face-to-face activity with young people or adult volunteers.
As a result, from the 5th of November until the end of the lockdown period, Dringhouses Scouts will not be meeting face-to-face. We’re currently reviewing the programmes we had planned and will be starting online meetings again. We understand that not all of our membership enjoy online meetings, so we a are also looking at some exciting alternatives.
While our leaders, who are all volunteers, re-plan the rest of the term we do have a favour to ask of all the parents, children and young people in the Group: do you have any suggestions for what to do during this period, they can be as simple or complex as you like, but we’d really like to involve you in programme planning, as we bet you’ll have some great ideas! Please reach out to your section leader or use the contact form on our website to send us your thoughts.
