COVID-19 and 8th Cheam

8th Cheam and Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Along with all other groups in the UK, face to face meeting have been suspended due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Given our current situation, we thought we would provide an update on how this is affecting scouting at 8th Cheam. We have been taking advice from the Scout Association who have been providing updates and general guidance over the past months.

More importantly, how 8th Cheam are supporting our young people while our face to face meetings have been suspended.

We are using Zoom as our on-line meeting platform.

The leaders and executive (after a few early tech problems) are keeping up to date with on-line meetings to discuss the day to day running of the group’s finances, its HQ, programme ideas and updates and to keep up to date with all the latest information sent down from the Scout Association.

We are still delivering a comprehensive programme.

All our sections are either communicating with parents via email and/or WhatsApp or running weekly Zoom meetings so that our young people can keep learning and stay safe, like nights away at home, other badges and much more…

If you’d like your child to join 8th Cheam.

8th Cheam are still taking on new members. If you would like your child to join us, just send an email to the respective section, Beavers 6-8, Cubs 8-10.5, Scouts 10-14.5, Adult Volunteer, (see relevant pages). We will forward you an application form by return email.

Stay safe and well
