Return to Face to Face Scouting

As lockdown measures start to ease, the District Team is working hard with leaders and Group Executive Committee members to ensure a safe return to face to face Scouting.

Nationally a 4-stage traffic light system is in place with a National Framework for us all to follow. At present, we are at ‘Amber’ level, which means that face to face Scouting can begin in groups of no more than 15 in the outdoors, provided a stringent set of criteria have been met. These include a detailed written risk assessment being compiled, checked and approved at Section, Group and District level, with copies passed to the County Commissioner.

Safety is our top priority so parents of youth members will also be consulted so they are able to confirm in writing that they are happy for their child to resume Scouting under the conditions outlined by the leader.

Please bear with us through these difficult times, we need everything in place before the fun can resume face to face.

While you are waiting why not have a go at the Regional Staycation Road Trip programme of activities which is available at www.nys.org.uk/images/stories/Activities_Forms/Roadtrip-NERegionFinalVersion.pdf

Sunrise Sunset

On Sunday, 21st June North Yorkshire Scouts joined together to enjoy a full day of activities from sunrise to sunset.

The programme began with the County Commissioner. Mark Edwards, being joined by others at high points across the County. Tom Haigh, County and District Youth Commissioner, bravely got up at 2.30am to be on the summit of Ingleborough in time for the opening ceremony! Sadly, the sunrise here was shrouded in mist but at least the day was kicked off with an interesting start. The full sequence can be viewed on YouTube.

Throughout the day activities were streamed via YouTube. An early item saw Dan Nelson, Settle Scout Leader, taking us on an interesting foraging journey on Castleberg and around the lanes of Settle to inspire viewers to take a closer look at the amazing flora in our countryside. Dan’s knowledge is extensive so the video is well worth watching at www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkJaj2YIeXs.

Later the Forrow family enjoyed creating alien models and had fun in the kitchen making Rocky Road. The day was rounded off with a campfire and a ‘visit’ from a surprise celebrity, Tim Kidd, Chief Commissioner, who was welcomed by the County Commissioner.

Thanks go to everyone who took part in any way. Hope you all had fun!
