In this your second newsletter from your County Team, we have quite a lot of information to share with you this week. This is a challenging and difficult time for all of us, so we thank you for your ongoing support of Scouting in Suffolk.
Please remember that the key communications over the coming months will be the weekly email newsletter and our new website portal for all related Coronavirus Activities . Our Facebook and Twitter pages will be updated from time to time but are not our official source of news. All content we post will be based on UK Government and The Scout Association guidelines.
Scouting at Home
Suffolk Scouts is proud to announce our own programme ideas to help you manage remote scouting. Details can be found on the Suffolk Scouts website under the Coronavirus tab or by clicking here.
There are many ideas for Scouting at Home on Facebook, you might like to investigate some of these. Many groups and sections have set up their own Facebook groups as a tool for continuing Scouting activities. Do remember to ensure any Facebook groups are closed groups, and continue to consider the principles of Safeguarding. You can find general guidelines for using social media here .
If you subscribe as a group to Online Scout Manager, the OSM team have put together a range of ideas to continue Scouting.
Do also remember that “The Great IN-doors” programme is available from The Scout Association and can be found here.
