Extract of an Email From Tim Kidd UK Chief Commissioner of Scouting.
“Late this afternoon, the Prime Minister has said that everyone in the UK should now avoid non-essential travel and contact with others.
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 must 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.
