Information Regarding the Coronavirus

Updated March 16th (All meetings cancelled until further notice for 12th Andover as well as the 3rd and the Explorers who also meet at the hut)

We are sure that you are all aware of the current situation regarding the Coronavirus and in order to keep you up to date with how that is impacting the 12th and 3rd Andover Scout Groups as well as the Explorer group who meet at our hut we will be keeping this item updated. Please visit this site for the latest news or contact your section leaders.

We are following the latest advice given on both the Government and NHS coronavirus sites. You can find links to these sites below and on the ‘Links’ section of this website. The UK risk level is currently at ‘high’.

After the government briefing on March 16th we have been instructed by the national Scouting Association that with immediate effect we must stop all face-to-face activities UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

This is a very regrettable situation but one that we all expected. We cannot say currently when we will start meetings again but we will inform you when then eventually happens. We expect this to last at least 12 weeks.

Regarding paying monthly subscriptions we realise that your young people will not be attending and so if you wish to stop payments for the time being then that is understandable. However, if there is any way at all that you are in a position to be able to continue your payments even though we are not meeting then we would be extremely grateful as we still have many bills to pay and things are going to get a little difficult. It is however entirely your choice.
