This term we anticipate that most of our meetings will be on zoom, supplemented with the occasional outdoor meeting. Zoom meetings will be at 6.00-6.30. Outdoor meetings will generally be at 5.45-6.30pm, with a second session at 6.00-6.45pm if required. Before each outdoor meeting, please check your emails to make sure it is still going ahead. We may have to cancel at very short notice due to bad weather, local lockdowns, a change to Scouting regulations etc. When possible we will post updates on our closed parents’ facebook page. If we have to cancel, we will try to re-arrange for another date but, as the Leaders will also be running Cub activities and can’t be with two bubbles on the same day, it may not be possible.
The activity packs contain craft materials for the zoom meetings. After each meeting, we will email instructions for the craft, so that Beavers who don’t like zoom, or who missed the meeting can still take part. Although it seems very unlikely at the moment, if Scout Readiness Levels change and we are can meet all the new requirements, we may be able to start some meetings inside. If this happens, the Beavers would need to bring their activity pack with them, so please don’t use the materials in advance!
