Coronavirus – COVID19


We are writing to share critical pieces of information relating to the developing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. These are the current guidelines from the Scout Association. 

Suspension of face-to-face activities

Given this guidance, all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events must be suspended from tomorrow, Tuesday, 17 March 2020. This suspension applies to young people and adults, and will be until further notice.

We continue to respond to the developing situation in a calm, measured and appropriate way. We will continue to follow official guidance. The safety of everyone involved in Scouts, both young people and adults, is our number one priority. That is always at the heart of our decision making.

Government advice

The Government’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) webpage is frequently updated as things develop, so please check it regularly at

If you have any questions or queries regarding sections and COVID-19 (Coronavirus) please email

We endeavour to respond as soon as we can, but please remember that we are all volunteers and are currently receiving a high amount of emails and calls.

We plan to mainly update this page and email all parents & members when we have any more information, and hopefully answers to your questions – please take this time to make sure your email address is up to date on Online Scout Manager.

Thanks, all at Blaby Scouts – Stay Safe
