So for the foreseeable future, the new Group will meet online, and encourage outdoor Parent-led activities, such as local walking routes or art trails, to supplement the online programme. Parents, Cubs and Beavers will be encouraged to share their adventures using Online Scout Manager and Zoom or Teams.

As the Group begins to evolve we will post updates and requests here:
