Dear Parents/Members and Supporters,

Firstly I would like to introduce myself as the newly appointed Group Scout Leader. I have been involved with Scouting here at the 11th since I was 6 years old.  I moved through all the sections as a young person then became a leader and ran the Cub pack for several years.  After a short break to spend more time with my family I am now returning to help develop the group further.

I would like to reach out to you all during this strange time that we are facing at the moment and re-assure you all that we are still here as a group.  Currently we are meeting virtually each Friday evening via the Zoom platform, but myself and the rest of the leaders are working on ideas to get back together and restart face to face Scouting.

As you can imagine we have to prepare risk assessments and have those signed off by the Scout district , and also ensure that we meet certain covid-19 criteria for our meetings.

This should hopefully all start coming together in the next few weeks but until then please do carry on supporting the group by joining the Friday Zoom meetings and hopefully we can get back to together in a safe manor very soon.

If you have any questions or issues please feel free to reach out to me, my contact details are at the base of this email.

Hopefully I will see as many of you as possible this Friday for our joint all sections meeting.

Kind Regards


Michael Holroyd | Group Scout Leader
