Following advice from The Scout Association issued on the 16th March 2020, we are suspending all face-to-face activities with immediate effect until further notice. The safety of everyone involved in Scouts, both young people and adults, is our number one priority. That is always at the heart of our decision making.
During this time, you and your child are more than welcome to work towards their badges, particularly those that require a period of commitment or additional tasks at home. More information about badges and their requirements can be found at the appropriate link below.
We hope you and your Scout/s have had a nice break over half term, Scouts start again this Thursday (28th) with a tour of the Fox’s biscuit factory in Uttoxeter. Please note that it is an earlier start of 6pm at the Scout Hut or 6.25pm outside Fox’s gates in Uttoxeter if that is easier. We will be back at the Scout Hut 8.45pm.
Fox’s have asked if it would be ok to take photos of our trip. We are very lucky, as tours are not something they usually do, and they would like to be able to share our trip with the rest of the workforce, with the new policies in place photos need parental consent, no names will be used with the photographs and are only being use internally, then please sign the attached form and bring it with you. We will have some spare on Thursday night if you are unable to print. Please also remember to bring your activity form too. Full uniform will be needed plus clean shoes, due to the large range of shoe sizes the factory are unable to provide safety shoes for us all, so instead they have asked if all scouts and leaders can wear clean shoes (ideally clean black school shoes as it fits with out uniform, please try to avoid the brightly colour trainers)
