I wanted to let you know the cubs Leaders want to keep scouting and we are planning to put some activities together. We cannot meet face to face but we will be meeting virtually in the near future to see what we can do. This is new for all of us, things are exciting for those that will be off school but we are aware that some of you, as children of key workers, will still be going to school. We would like to do some additional activities for those that want a distraction or to keep busy. This will be important for many of us in the coming weeks and months.

The Scout Association has already put together a list of badge work that can be done at home. The online service, OSM, that we subscribe to as a group has also said it is working hard to produce material that can be used when there is no face to face meeting. We want to let the dust settle a little bit before we send out this information and try something. We will all have the challenges of adjusting to what is the new ‘normal’. Whether that be home schooling, working from home or avoiding close proximity to others.

For now I would just like to say there are things you can be doing in your everyday activities.

Think of your Cub promise

I promise that I will do my best

do my duty to God and the queen

help other people and

keep the Cub scout Law

Please think of this promise every day

If any of you have made your mothers a card or gift for mothering Sunday send us a picture of what you made. It would cheer us up but also count towards a badge.

I am sure you will be helping about the house so keep a record and this will count towards your home help badge.

If there is anything we can do let us know.

Stay safe and we will be in touch
