With everyone staying at home due to coronavirus epidemic and everyone in the UK now avoiding non-essential travel and contact with others, normal Scouting is on hold.
However, the County Team will be putting online activities and badgework that can be done from home, so that Scouting can continue.
The first one is working towards the Scouts Astronomer Activity Badge. You can see the info sheet by clicking on this link.

You could be involved in helping support County-run activities and events but mostly we are looking for people who are keen to work with District teams (ADCs and Activity leads) helping them to develop and deliver great programme for young people locally.
We are looking to fill three ACC roles at the moment and if you are interested in any of these, please get in touch with Paul Creaser (Deputy County Commissioner – Programme)
We will also consider splitting or sharing roles if anyone feels they could do some elements but not the whole role or maybe would like to focus on a specific geography.
Please click on the links below for information about each role.
