Late this afternoon, the Prime Minister said that everyone in the UK should now avoid non-essential travel and contact with others.
The Scout Association has this evening instructed all groups that all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events must be suspended from tomorrow, Tuesday, 17 March 2020, until further notice.
Therefore all section meetings, camps and trips are cancelled, until further notice.
Both The Scout Association and East Goscote Scout Group will continue to respond to the developing situation in a calm, measured and appropriate way. We will continue to follow official guidance. The safety of everyone involved in Scouts, both young people and adults, is our number one priority. That is always at the heart of our decision making.
The leadership team thank you for your understanding and will keep you informed as the situation develops.
