Another month and we are still in Lockdown. Within the District the number of Clubs that are meeting using Zoom, Messenger or Telephone has risen to over 85 clubs.
This technology not only offers us the opportunity to make new friends, but it can also allow us to support our communities and its’ groups. One example is if you have a Zoom Licence for the Club, why not offer it to the local Scout or Guide Group for virtual meetings or have open Coffee Mornings.
We have found some schools do not have a licence, so they could use it for staff meetings, or a class meeting where the students can have some time together; the opportunities are endless.
If you have supported the Youth Competitions and RYLA or have hosted a Global Scholar, why not invite them to your virtual meeting. They can tell you their experiences of the lockdown. We invited our Global Scholar to our Zoom Meeting; the outcome was a group photo and a link with a club in Iowa. We are now planning a joint meeting and who knows how we will work together in the future.
So why not continue with the virtual raids both within the District or overseas allowing us to share new ideas and make new friends. Keeping in touch is a must, it provides support while maintaining our friendship and fellowship.
