COVID-19 Coronavirus Update

Sunday 12 April 2020


Wemyss Firs

We continue to follow government advice and have now taken the decision to cancel bookings in May. Our bookings coordinator will contact the Groups affected to arrange a refund or credit note for future booking.


We are currently not accepting any new bookings prior to August. The safety and wellbeing of our visitors remains our highest priority and we will continue to adapt as new advice becomes available.

Monday 16 March 2020


Late this afternoon, the Prime Minister has said that everyone in the UK should now avoid non-essential travel and contact with others.


Suspension of face-to-face activities

Given this guidance, all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events must be suspended from tomorrow, Tuesday, 17 March 2020. This suspension applies to young people and adults, and will be until further notice.


We must continue to respond to the developing situation in a calm, measured and appropriate way. We will continue to follow official guidance. The safety of everyone involved in Scouts, both young people and adults, is our number one priority. That is always at the heart of our decision making.


Wemyss Firs

Our District Campsite, Wemyss Firs will remain closed until further notice. At this stage we have cancelled all bookings through to the end of April and have contacted the Groups affected to arrange a full refund or credit note for future booking. We are not cancelling bookings from May onwards for now, though that may change as guidance evolves and time passes.


We appreciate that Groups may wish to have more certainty for planning purposes for May and beyond, so may wish to cancel their booking. Please get in touch should you wish to discuss.


Our booking system will remain open for July onwards for now. Again this may change as guidance evolves.
