This page provides the latest guidance and advice on how 1st Fressingfield Scout Group are responding to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and will be regularly updated.

We continue to base our guidance and advice on governmental health advice, which can be found at www.gov.uk/coronavirus and from ‘The Scouts’ available at www.scouts.org.uk/coronavirus.

Therefore, in accordance with the latest government advice and in the interests of public health: all face-to-face Scouting meetings activities and events have been suspended until further notice.

Our leadership team are currently working on delivering ‘virtual’ Scouting, running on the online video streaming service ‘Zoom’. Alongside our regular sessions, our team have been putting together activities and tasks on our active Facebook page.

Group Camp: 1st-3rd May
We will be running Group Camp virtually this year and a full camp plan will come out in the next week or so. Please sign up to this so that we know who is ‘on camp’.
While there is no charge for the camp – we would like to invite you to make a donation, should you wish, of £20 per ‘attendee’. Donations will go towards our HQ Development Campaign.
For more information, please read our Spring 2020 Newsletter.

Scouting From Home:
Of course, we encourage all members to continue their Scouting at home should they wish. Here are some suggestions:

Scout Minibus Service
In this period, it is important to maintain our strong links with our community and our minibus is available FREE for critical community use. If you know of anyone that requires the use of our minibuses during this time. Obviously, in line with government guidelines please get in touch.

Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all in the not-to-distant future.
