Scout Promise

Where do 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.

7th Bicester Scouts plus provisional programme 

23/4  Bure park walk and Tree identification challenge. 6.30-7.30 Meet in the car park at Barberry Place. The ground may be muddy so wellington boots or old trainers are recommended.  
7/5  Zoom cooking 6.00-6.30 
21/5  Stoke woods walk and photo trail 6.30-7.30

Subs Subs of £20 are due at the first face to face meeting. Subs can be paid by cash or cheque (payable to 7th Bicester Scout Group). Cash must be in a named envelope. 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.  Please also don’t forget to email me with any changes to contact details or medical information.

Uniform. For outdoor meetings, Scouts Plus should wear the Group polo shirt, 7th Bicester fleece and neckerchief. They also need old trousers, suitable footwear, plus a coat/sun hat depending on the weather. If they haven’t got uniform yet, it doesn’t matter what they wear.
