Dear Team North Yorkshire,
I hope that you are all enjoying a bit of rest.
It was great to see so many pictures on your Group sites of people taking part in our World Scout Scarf Day on 1st August. Well done everyone!
This takes you directly to The Scout Association Getting Everyone Back Safely page, with all the current advice and documentation. These are updated regularly and have some very useful checklists and example templates to follow.
Before the weekend, I should be able to launch our mental welfare resource that we have developed with Leeds Beckett University and Minds Ahead. I am just testing the site with them over the next few days. All the materials are now completed so it is just a case of fine tuning. Please keep a look out for details.
The County Office will be taking some time out from the 10th-21st August. So, unless there are any urgent messages, I am going to take a short break from these updates and publish the next one on Tuesday 25th August. However, I will be contactable for the whole of August on the usual email address should you need to contact me. Our Facebook page and other social media site will continue with reminders about summer activities.
To read the full 'update' from the CC, go to the "Scouting at Home" page on this website and scrawl down to the CC's updates to see more about:
