Affects to Scouting

Following the advice from the Scout Association, some activities have been stopped until further notice including any face-to-face meetings or any Scout events.

However this doesn’t mean that all activities will stop: some groups have shared some activities for young people to do at home with their parents faced with self-isolation.
