Covid-19 Information - January 2021

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions at this time indoor activities will be limited. We will be checking Government directives and NYA (National Youth Agency) guidelines weekly, and following Scout Association guidelines  (now at Readiess level: Red).  

At the present time we are organising  group sessions which will take place online -using  the Zoom App. Arrangements may change at short notice once we move back to Readiness level: Amber. The health and safety of our Leaders, their families, and young members is paramount so face-to-face sessions will not take place at the moment.. 

Please check your contact details with us are up-to-date. Information will be sent via OSM (Online Scout Manager) or other method you have agreed with the Scout Leaders.

The Co-op Nationwide Community Fund 

We received our final payment from the Co-op Community Fund in October 2020. We want to thank our local Co-op stores (Dore and Totley) for supporting us as one of their preferred local charities, and Co-op members of the community who chose us as their charity. By then using their Co-op points/membership cards when buying products from the Co-op, they enabling us to gain 1% of the purchase price.

Previously the fund supported our Scout Group to purchase a defibrillator machine,  now sited on the outside of our Scout HQ,  for use of the Scouts and community. (The Funds will also cover the upkeep of the unit in the future for 2 years). We also bought a range of equipment to support our Annual Community Events (Gala & Bonfire Night Events), and weekly activites planned for our young members. The 2020 funding enabled us do urgent repairs on our ageing Scout HQ.  Work was needed on the roof, windows and exterior walls. 

Thank-you for all this vital support.
