Covid -19

As yet we are still not able to return to face to face scouting, we have put our risk assesments in and are awaiting approval from HQ, the safety of the children and volunteers is paramount.

Thank you

This year has been very taxing, we have had to try and develop a programme to keep children entertained as we have never in the history of scouting done virtual sessions. I would just like to inform you that Matthew “Hutch” Hutchinson, and Tom Warn earnt commisoner commendations for an engaging program.

I would also like to thank Ellen Newman and Shannon Schofield for your time with Withington and we wish you every sucess in the future and you are always welcome to join us.

I would also like to thank David Woodhams and Richard Lees for all their work and being part of the exec team.

Lastly I would like to thank you, and your families for being part of this amazing group, at times i have stuggled with the darker side of covid, but the sessions are a ray of light in dark times.

Some groups are looking at closure becuase of lack of children, leader or funds. We have been fortunate that we will survive and next year thrive.

Finally, next year we will be back to face to face scouting, and its our 110th year so lets hit it big and make this group the best, lets share the light!

Yours in Scouting
