COVID-19 info

We understand there are still unknowns as the pandemic advice changes and evolves. We want to provide you with all the information we have, about how your local Group may be approaching their Scouts activities. Most Groups have continued online for several months, and are now getting ready to start introducing some face-to-face activities in smaller Groups. Of course this varies depending on location, Group size, individual circumstances, and volunteer availability.  

This page outlines the readiness level for Scouting in Nottinghamshire. You can view more detailed guidance for leaders here, or view more detailed guidance for parents here
