  • We are delighted our District Explorer Scout Commissioner & friend Niall Williams is home after six long months fighting Covid-19 and yet, we know his fight is not over. Niall has a long road ahead to recover but such is Scouting, he is surrounded by the biggest support network anyone could hope for as demonstrated by the turnout to welcome him home. The street was lined on both sides and both directions (social distancing helps of course!). An emotional moment but especially proud of our Dalgety Bay Explorer Scouts!

  • The District AGM was held over Zoom on Wednesday 16th September 2020 at 7:30. View the Rosyth District AGM Documents.

  • The District have a set of Laerdal CPR manikins, comprising Baby Anne, Little Junior and three Little Anne's along with a Defibtech AED trainer. If you wish to book the equipment for training scouts (Beavers all the way to leaders) please contact Gordon to arrange.

Congratulations

Silver Wolf Medal

It is with great delight to announce that the Silver Wolf has been awarded to Elaine Pert. A date for the presentation still has to be arranged.

The Silver Wolf is the unrestricted gift of the Chief Scout and is only awarded for service of a most exceptional nature.

Congratulations Elaine, This is so well deserved for your hard work over so many years in the 48th, The Inch Scout Active Support and Rosyth District.

Risk Assessments

Following two recent safeguarding incidents, it is clear that effective and adequate Risk Assessments are not being done. Will all Executive committee members and leaders visit Risk Assessments now. Risk assessments are required for all premises, owned or leased, and all activities.

Note: For re-starting Scouting under the Governments COVID-19 regulations, additional RAs are required.

Membership Records

All members of TSA are responsible for updating their personal information on Compass. Please check your record is correct - especially contact details i.e. email address, telephone.

If you are unsure of how to do this, please speak with your line manager/GSL.

Training

  • All leaders please note that a current First Aid or First Response certificate is now required at all times.

  • With many of us in forced 'stay at home' due to Covid19, it would also be opportune time to update all other mandatory training including the 6 hours annual requirement, by refreshing the 'Safety' and 'Safeguarding' online Training modules.

  • Information for Adult Training.
    Please visit these pages as we need your help in making Scotland more compliant, in terms of our Safety and Safeguarding rules. Young people's safety must be our primary concern, at all times, but a significant number of our adults are not completing Module 1/1E or Safety/Safeguarding ongoing learning, within the prescribed times. It's really important that everyone is up to date with this training,

District Diary

  • The District Diary shows all known District events and National, Scottish, and Regional events of interest. This will be maintained with all known dates, but be aware that many events will not be happening due to Covid19.

  • To help leaders in planning programmes, it has been updated to show all school holiday and 'In Service Training' dates up to summer 2022.

  • To allow District or Regional Teams to schedule visits, it would be very helpful if all major events within the District, i.e. Group AGMs; Fund Raising; and community events, are also added.

  • To view Rosyth District Scout Council's policy for Data Protection it can be downloaded as a PDF document.
