Update sent to parents on 6 November:
We are so delighted that we can finally get back to face-to-face Cub Scout meetings.
According to the latest restrictions, groups in Metropolitan Melbourne can undertake face-to-face outdoor Scouting as a whole section but must be split into small groups limited to 10 participants (excluding leaders and parent helpers). A reasonable distance between each Patrol or small group must be maintained at all times.
We need to work together to ensure a safe return to face-to-face scouting.
- Wear masks during the meeting
- Provide hand sanitiser at sign in, sign out and required intervals
- Clean equipment and high-touch areas
- Keep records of Cubs (name, contact number, time in & out)
- Not send their child to Cubs if their child is unwell or showing any COVID symptoms
- Ensure their child brings sufficient water
- Not let their child bring food to Cubs
- Be available on the phone to collect their child if asked to do so by a leader at any time during the evening
New parent helper roster
As we will need to split into 3 groups of up to 10, we need 3 parent helpers as well as the 3 leaders for each Cub meeting. It is very important that we adhere to child safety rules, so if parent helpers do not show up, the meeting will be cancelled, and Cubs will be sent home. A new parent helper roster is now available below.
As restrictions change, we will continue to consult the 6th Melbourne Group Leaders & Committee and update all parents on any alterations to this plan.
As we make this transition, our aim is to keep your family safe. If you have any concerns or if you feel there is more we could do, please contact us via email at and we will do what we can to support you.
Yours in Scouting,
6th Melbourne Cub Scout Leaders
Rahul Barmanray (Akela), Kerry Morrow (Kaa), Jon Baker (Ikki)
