COVID-19 Update

Due to the current situation, all Scouting activities have been suspended until at least the end of July. This obviously includes all of the section meetings, camps and events that we at 1st Drayton were involved in or had arranged. It has been decided that the Hallowtree Camp in August will also be postponed and we are looking to rearrange it for August 2021.

We are aware that many of our young people will be disappointed (as we are) that we have had to cease our scouting but there is nothing that we can do about things at this time.

We will be looking to possibly organise some ‘on-line’ activities and we would ask that you keep a regular eye on the website and be aware of any communications from the section leaders.

We are also aware that many of you will have paid deposits, etc towards forthcoming events and we are keen that everyone is reimbursed. There is a form here should you wish to have your payments returned.

It has been suggested that the payment of subs should be suspended whilst the Group is closed and if you feel that you want to do this, then please cancel your standing order/regular payment. We had been due to propose a small increase in subs later this year (to £12.50 per month) and we will re-issue the standing order form once the Group restarts at this new rate.

We hope that you and your families remain well through this time and if there are any questions, please feel free to contact either your section leader, GSL (Francis – gsl@1stdraytonscoutgroup.org.uk), Chair (Les – chair@1stdraytonscoutgroup.org.uk) or Treasurer (Derek – treasurer@1stdraytonscoutgroup.org.uk).

Best wishes
1st Drayton Leadership Team and Executive Committee
