The first Coronavirus lockdown in March resulted in face to face Scouting being halted throughout the Spring and Summer. This was very disappointing not only for our group but for groups that were looking to Camp at our Headquarters and explore our beautiful countryside. For some city groups this slice of Norfolk provides a welcome change from the big city that some groups escape from.
During the Summer Neil (GSL) and Mark (AGSL) prepared and distributed activity bags to our Beaver, Cubs and Scouts. The activities included a wide range of activities from making 'armpit' fudge and ice cream to finding and identify bugs and leaves in the garden. All the activities in the bag were set to
enable the children to gain skills for their badge requirements.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the local community and businesses for their support during this difficult time.
From working with the young people, developing and delivering a balanced, challenging and rewarding programme, to back office roles where you'll make a massive difference to the group (without being face-to-face with the young people) we've opportunities to suit every volunteer's available time.
We need people to help with the admin side of things for our sections, from maintaining records, taking minutes and some to help with our fund raising activities too.
We've a number of sections that need more adults to support the weekly section meetings. We don't need an every week commitment, but we do need more adults involved so we can continue to get out and about maintaining our excellent and varied programme.
If you can help, in any capacity, please get in touch:

Thank you for helping us enrich young people's lives and providing them with amazing skills for life.
