Batchworth Sea Scouts is run by parents and volunteers for the enjoyment of every member and it is vital that all parents are aware of how this process operates.  A series of short meetings are planned to cover current issues and future plans, as well as outline the funding and governance of the group.  It also gives members the opportunity to feedback views, thoughts and any concerns.

It may not sound exciting, but it is essential to the continued provision of the fun, adventure and life skills Batchworth currently offers your children.  We do expect full attendance from parents – just like parents’ evening at school.  Whilst the parent briefing is in progress, the section leaders will entertain the youth members elsewhere.

The briefing sessions will run at every section meeting in the week following half-term and parents only need to attend one session, if you have members in multiple sections.  If you are not able to attend your own member’s section meeting, please simply attend an alternative one from the list below.  The meeting will last approximately 30 – 40 minutes.

When parking at the Batchworth headquarters, please try to park within the marked spaces as this maximises the capacity of our car park.

Many thanks,

Michael Read – Group Scout Leader


Parent Briefing Sessions Timetable


Covid-19 and Scouting

Batchworth Sea Scouts follows the advice of The Scout Association in relation to the safe delivery of Scouting, who in turn work with The National Youth Agency to translate Government advice into governance rules.  They have implemented a tiered Readiness Level, controlling the type of activities that can be delivered based on local conditions.

We are currently at Yellow readiness level allowing group sessions where precautions and social distancing are implemented, including small overnight expeditions.  We expect further changes in the coming months as the national picture evolves.

Leaders continue to work with parents to deliver the best scouting experience possible, whilst conforming to the current Readiness Level restrictions.

Thank you to everyone for your support in these times and please contact us with ideas, suggestions and requests.

Meeting Times

Currently, meeting times are subject to amendment to accommodate the best programme delivery within Covid restrictions.
