The 53rd is now closed until further notice. All

Unfortunately some members have not
completed this Scouting Year Enrolment that
was due in Oct 2020. The next time we will be

Those members have already been removed
from the Section Chats to avoid
misunderstandings when we will be asking
the Chat Groups back to Scouting at the Huts.
