Welcome to 2nd Abingdon Scouts

At 2nd Abingdon Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.

Each week, we give over 100 young people the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed.

2nd Abingdon Scout Group

***UPDATE***
Youth services including Scouts and Guides are deemed “essential” and are unaffected by the change today as long as we comply with the enhanced safety measures we have put in place.
*****
So, I expect some of you are wondering what today’s announcement means for our return to scouting. The answer is we don’t know yet. Scouts UK is working with the National Youth Agency and DCMS to assess the impact. Meanwhile we won’t send out the small group allocations in case anything changes this week. Thanks for your patience.

2nd Abingdon Scout Group

We have received our approval to restart face-to-face scouting! Details will be coming next week. All sections will restart from 21st Sept but your child may not be meeting that week since we we will be operating in small groups of between 10 and 12. Alongside our face-to-face meetings we will be providing activities to do at home for all sections.
Please bear with us as we get used to a new scouting normal and read the information that comes to you VERY carefully. Sections won’t be operating like school so please don’t assume anything. For now 2m distancing will be required in all sections and Scouts (not Beavers or Cubs) will need to bring a face covering with them to meetings. All of this will be explained in your section-specific communications next week.
We are looking forward to seeing you again!
