Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus (COVID-19)


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.

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.

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

ALL camps, trips, outings etc are cancelled until further notice, we will stop event payments from now and the Group exec based on the government advice will review all events one at a time. We will endeavour to rearrange events if possible and keep you up dated.

We are planning to share activities for young people to do at home with your families that maybe self-isolating. Please see the 'Scouts at Home' page under the parents tab for resources that your young people can do at home.

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 Syston Scouts – Stay Safe

Our Policy

Last Updated: 05/10/2020

The last few months have been a challenge for us all. Here at Syston Scouts, our leaders and executive committee have been hard at work, putting provisions in place to ensure a safe restart to Scouts. We have put together a policy, that outlines all that you need to know, and highlights all of the provisions that we have put in place.
