As we resume some face to face Scouting activities there may be some confusion from members of the public who are concerned that we are not following the Rule of 6 which became a legal requirement as of Monday 14th Sept.

Across Fareham our Scout Groups are making a gradual move back to face to face Scouting. This will mean we can meet but only under strict rules from UK Scouting, these include having agreed Covid Specific risk assessments in place and limits on the number of Scouts and Leaders attending any single meeting. The info below is from Scouts HQ and our activities will be following these guidelines

Despite the recent change to social gathering restrictions in England (9 September 2020), the government has confirmed that as an essential service, youth sector activity can continue unchanged where groups and units follow Scouts restart guidance, which is in line with COVID secure NYA guidance standards.
We can confirm the following changes to the rules for Amber readiness in England:

• Indoor activities are now allowed, but outdoor activities are preferred and should be encouraged
• Numbers change to 15 young people and up to five leaders (carers can be in addition and will not be counted in these numbers) – this applies both indoors and outdoors. Leaders can also include Young Leaders.
• Young people must stay in their limited group size but adults will now be able to move between these groups, i.e. across the 25m spacing if outdoors or to a section meeting at a different time on the same day.
• Leaders don’t need to wear a face covering when delivering activities – however, it’s recommended to wear one in all other circumstances while indoors.
• Scouts and Explorers must now wear face coverings indoors. Exceptions as per national guidelines are permitted.

For now, all young people in all sections must continue to social distance by 2m from each other where possible and from adult volunteers at all times.

Fareham East District Scouts

On Tuesday 18th I was delighted to be invited by the leaders at 10th Fareham to present a Chief Scout Gold award to Leo. This was this first section in our District to be running a full section evening under the Covid Amber scheme. It was held outside with full social distancing rules being followed, the Scouts were learning knife axe and saw skills.

As I had just awarded Leo with his award he on behalf of the Hampshire program pixies presented me with a certificate of appreciation for work during the current Covid pandemic.

What a good evening
