Coronavirus

Following Government advice and guidance from Scouts HQ, our face to face activities are currently running on a limited capacity for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers.

We will continue to follow official guidance; 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.

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.

Scouts advice

The Scouts Coronavirus webpage will be kept up to date with the guidelines that we will be following as a Group.

Stay updated

We will keep this page updated with any new information as and when we have it. This page is tailored specifically to 1st Bedworth Scout Group and aims to keep our members up to date with our activities and camps.

Returning to face to face activities

Following the latest updates from The Scouts, we have now returned to face to face activities.

Keeping you all safe is our top priority and there is a lot of very important information that you will need to read so that your youngster can return to face to face meetings. All of this information has been emailed to you.

Some of the sections will be meeting on different days and at different times to usual. We don’t plan on this being permanent and the changes had to be made to safely accommodate our members (young people and adults).

The following Sections will have received more information via email:

  • Beavers
  • Cubs
  • Scouts
  • Explorers
  • Young Leaders

Parent/Carer permission to return to face to face activities

In the information emailed to you there is a link to a form which must be completed before your young person can return to face to face activities. We no longer need you to complete a permission form to attend face to face activities.

COVID secure building

We have taken measures to ensure that our Scout Hut is COVID secure.

  • The Scout Hut is ‘fogged’ using an antiviral disinfectant solution which cleans and sanitises large buildings effectively. We do this each month
  • Cleaning of the Scout Hut is carried out before and after each face to face activity
    • Cleaning and sanitisation equipment is available at the Scout Hut
  • We will be cleaning any equipment used between sessions. If it cannot be cleaned, then it will be quarantined for 72 hours before being used again
  • The toilets will be sanitised before and after each meeting
  • There will be sanitiser and hand washing facilities available to be used before, during and after the meeting
  • The internal and external doors will be open all the time to increase ventilation

Being at the Scout Hut

  • Please maintain social distancing at all times
  • For anybody over the age of 16, there is a NHS Track and Trace QR code for you to scan on entry to the Scout Hut
  • Scouts, Explorers and anybody over the age of 18 must wear a face covering while indoors (if you are medically exempt from this please let the Leader in Charge know ASAP)

Showing Symptoms?

If you are showing symptoms before going to the Scout Hut, or are currently self-isolating, please do not go to the Scout Hut and contact us ASAP.

If you develop symptoms up to 7 days after a meeting, please contact us ASAP so that we can advise further.

Self Isolating?

If you have been instructed to self-isolate then can you please fill in the following form: https://1stbedworth.co.uk/self-isolation

Scouting at home

Youngsters are encouraged to work on badges at home. We have sent out some guidance on how to go about this and also we will be giving suggestions on suitable badges and links.

The Scouts have just added a brand new webpage called The Great Indoors which is packed with resources on how you can continue Scouting at home!

Alongside our meetings our Leaders are putting out new challenges and activities for our members to complete at home. You can see a list of the current challenges at our own Great Indoors page.

Payment of subs

Starting from February 2021, we are charging our members subs again.

We are happy to say that subs will remain at £10/month (£2.50/week) and that this is the third year that we have not had to increase the cost of subs.

If you have any queries relating to subs payments please get in touch with us at [email protected].

Payments to camps and activities

We are hoping that our future activities will go ahead. Please continue to make payments to meet deadlines, secure in the knowledge that if we have to subsequently cancel these activities you will receive a full refund.
