Following the announcement of a lockdown in England from Monday 4th January. From today, Scouts and all other youth activities will move to Red readiness level.

This decision by the Government means that there can be no face-to-face activity with young people or adult volunteers. Only online meetings can be delivered until further notice.

We appreciate this is very short notice and is disappointing for many who have worked so hard to get their sections back together, and had fantastic plans for their young people over the coming weeks. We also understand and sympathise with those who now have the difficult task of cancelling meetings. We can’t thank you enough for everything you’re doing. Please be assured we would’ve liked to have given you as much notice as possible but this is the earliest opportunity. The NYA website will be updated to reflect this change at 1pm today.
