Welcome to Somerset Scouts
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement recently, the Government have confirmed there will be some changes to the way we can deliver Scouting activities within Somerset (and the rest of England) as we return to YELLOW state of readiness.
This means that whilst there is no limit on group size or the ability to still meet indoors, all activities must be able to safely manage the risk of transmission of Covid-19. If this is not possible, they should not take place. You may therefore need to revisit your Covid-19 Risk Assessments
This change should, hopefully, not reduce the amount of Scouting that is available as we know how important it is to all our members. So please, let’s try and do our best to continue delivering really great programmes.
You can check the latest readiness levels and obtain all the latest guidance and advice on The Scouts website.
Stay safe, Somerset.
Elizabeth Henderson (County Commissioner)
