We are back to face-to-face Scouting


The lockdown has been a challenge, but the Leaders at the 7th have risen to that challenge. We have continued to provide online virtual Scouting to all 9 of our sections.

But, finally, we are back to face-to-face activities, albeit in a limited fashion. We have had our first groups of Cubs and Scouts out on the water in kayaks at Manor Park.

Our dedicated team of volunteers have been working hard over the last month to develop and document COVID safe operating procedures and Risk Assessments so that we could start some paddlesport activities as soon as The Scout Association gave us permission to start.

This planning has paid off and we have been able to restart kayaking sessions already. Every Cub and Scout in the Group will get the opportunity for at least 1 session on the water over the next couple of weeks and we will then start offering sessions to other Scout Groups in Lichfield District as well as Explorers and Network sessions.

A huge thank you must to out to all of the paddlesport instructors that are giving up their time to run these sessions and to everyone at the 7th who has contributed to getting us ready.

If you are interested in getting involved in running paddlesport sessions for Lichfield Scouts please fill in the volunteering form at the right of this page and someone will get in touch.

In order to give our young people another adventurous activity, we have made a major investment in Paddleboards for the 2021 water season. The 7th has paid for 10 boards and, thanks to a generous donation by Sports England we have been able to boost this to 15 boards. This will enable us to run sessions for up to 12 young people at a time.

COVID-19 is the biggest crisis we’ve faced in a generation. Now, over 500 Scout groups – many of them based in communities that were already made vulnerable before the virus hit – are struggling to make ends meet. If they close their doors, thousands of young people will miss out on all the life-changing skills and experiences being a Scout can bring, precisely when they need us most.

Scouts are setting off on an epic #RaceRoundTheWorld to help the 500+ Scout Groups hardest hit by the crisis.
