Under the present COVID rules Scouting is permitted to resume Face to Face meeting’s even in Tier 3. Locally as a Leadership team we have made the difficult decision not to reopen Face to Face for the rest of 2020. We have taken this decision as we only have 3 more meetings before Christmas and to protect both Explorer’s & Leaders so we can all enjoy some sort of family Christmas. Our intention (unless anything changes in COVID rules) is to resume Face to Face Scouting on Friday 8th January. This will be with the same restrictions in place in September & October when we returned Face to Face.

In the meantime we will continue on Zoom for December:

Zoom Meeting ID: 930 5449 1225


Friday 4th December – Christmas Family Fortunes.

7.30pm start for some Gameshow fun.

Friday 11th December – Christmas Quiz

7.30pm start for Christmas themed Quiz.

Friday 18th December – Christmas Virtual Panto – Jack and the Beanstalk

Details to follow but as we are unable to make our Annual trip to the Panto we will be watching a virtual Panto. Ex Chief Scout, Former Blue Peter Presenter and Panto Veteran Peter Duncan has produced a Panto and we will share you exclusive code to view this on the 18th December. Sounds like a bit of fun to get in the Christmas spirit.

It will not surprise you to learn that our Annual Football Match will not happen on Boxing Day this year. This match has been played every year since the formation of Venture Scouting in 1967 with the Unit taking on Ex-Members so like so many things this year is another event that cannot go ahead. Hopefully we can play a Summer match!


Season’s Greetings to you all

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
