Welcome to Somerset Scouts
Somerset Scouting offers fun, challenge and adventure to around 4,500 members aged between 6 and 25 …. things are a bit different at the moment, in 2021. The following message is from our County Commissioner.
As the restrictions gradually ease nationally, Scouting in Somerset (and the rest of England) is now at the YELLOW state of alert.
This means that section meetings can take place outdoors and indoors, as long as appropriate social distancing is observed.
No residential activities are allowed, except for small expeditions of no more than 6 participants.
For activities involving young people, there is no limit on group size, but you must remain as only one section, meeting independently of others.
In these unprecedented times, whilst so much is uncertain and unknown for our young people, Scouting still strives to be a constant – offering stability, fun and…. skills for life.
As national restrictions ease, the vaccination programme is rolled out and most of Somerset’s groups are meeting face to face once again… please do keep alert and mindful of the continuing risks.
Stay safe, Somerset.
Elizabeth Henderson (County Commissioner)
