This is excellent news for Scouting in the YDNP. Following the stepping down of former Chair, Carl Lis, who is a dedicated Scout Group Chair & Appointments Panel member, it'll be good to have a friend of Scouting on the executive. We wish you well, Derek. @CravenHerald @NYScouts

On #YouthDay2020, we celebrate the contribution young people make to Scouting. The voice of youth members matters! They not only shape the future of Scouting & learn leadership skills but their enthusiasm is a great motivator for adult volunteers, too. @worldscouting @NYScouts ⚜️

Good Luck to all our members receiving 'A' Level results today! Grades will open doors for your future but the #SkillsforLife you learnt through Scouting will stay with you for ever! @TimothyKidd @KesterSharpe @NYScouts @SettleCollege @giggschool @Thisisingleton @settlecombushub

Photographic Competition

Settle Scouts have recently launched an imaginative competition to find images to decorate acoustic panels which are being installed in their Drill Hall headquarters. Images need to be square but short-listed photos in landscape format may be cropped with the photographer’s approval.

To enter, high definition images (10 megapixel minimum) need to be uploaded to pollunit.com/polls/castleberg by midnight on Sunday 27th September 2020.

The five best images from the twelve top-rated photos in the on-line exhibition will then be selected by the Group Executive Committee. These top twelve photos will also feature in a limited edition calendar to be distributed as a Thank You to their sponsors and exhibition winners. Full terms and conditions are available from PollUnit and on request from settledrillhall2040@gmail.com. Your image could brighten up the Drill Hall walls for decades so do give it a go!

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
