Cub Promise

Where fo those badges go?

We have been given the go-ahead to restart outdoor face-to-face activities but our guidelines have changed again. This letter will let you know the steps we are taking to make sure we keep everyone safe.

Firstly, anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, or who has been in contact with anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms (within the last two weeks), shouldn’t come to face-to-face activities, and should follow government guidelines on self-isolation and testing.

Secondly, young people who are shielding or in a vulnerable group might not be able to return to face-to-face activities at this stage. Also, some young people, including those with additional needs, might need reasonable adjustments putting in place to support a return to face-to Scouting. Please email to discuss any concerns.

Provisional Program

Subs Subs of £30 are due at the first face to face meeting. Subs can be paid by cash, cheque (payable to 7th Bicester Scout Group) or card. If paying by cash or cheque, please give this to your child’s group leader. Cash must be in a named envelope. Martin will be there at 5.45 and at 7.35 only to take the card payments. Martin is not part of the Cub “bubbles” so please leave your child with their group Leader and keep socially distant while waiting to pay. If you also have a child in Beavers, it will be easier to pay for both children at the Beaver meeting.

We recognize that we are going through a period of financial uncertainty, so if you need to pay in instalments you can speak privately to me or to our Group Scout Leader, Martin. 

We will still provide a small activity pack containing craft materials for the zoom meetings. It can be collected at the first face to face meeting. Please don’t use the materials in advance.

Uniform. For both zoom and outdoor meetings, Beavers and Cubs should wear the blue Group t-shirt and neckerchief, with the Cub/Beaver sweatshirt if it is cold. For outdoor meetings, they need old trousers, suitable footwear for running around in, plus a coat/sun hat depending on the weather. Please don’t buy the official Beaver or Cub t-shirt on the internet, as we have our own group design.

Safety reminder. Parking on the church car park is for leaders only. Please do not stop on the yellow lines or in the residents’ parking when dropping off your child. Don’t forget to email me with any changes to contact details or medical information.
