The 1st Abbots Langley Scouts have filled us in on how they functioned in lockdown.
Young Scout James Fewster explained: “Since September, we have not been able to return to a normal Scouts evenings, but with all credit to our leaders, we have been able to meet up and work on a number of topics in our virtual world.
“To help us all with the activities each week, we have been provided with an envelope of goodies.
“This included the bandages in what was one of my all-time favourite tasks that we did on how to wrap this round a ‘wound’.
“Some of the events are slightly more messy, such as the cooking session where we had to make chocolate brownies.
“Overall, we have completed a wide range of activities, all of which have been done through Zoom with instructions and chatter, running around our houses and generally causing mayhem on a Thursday night!
“I have really enjoyed myself and thank all the leaders for their perseverance with what is a large group of noisy Scouts.”
There has been a limited return to face-to-face Scouting since March 29.
