Coronavirus Update 22/09/20
A note from the Captain
Further to my update of 17th. August i want to advise you further on our work in trying to get Boys’ Brigade activities up and running again.
We have been working with both the Boys’ Brigade authorities (Glasgow Battalion and Brigade Scotland) and Cardonald Parish Church, both of whose advice and authorisation are required for us to recommence activities. As per the schools we are permitted to commence face-face activities for all sections providing we have the necessary safety precautions in place. As you are aware boys over the age of 12 would be required to wear face masks indoors or practice social distancing which is obviously not ideal for the activities we would wish to do.
Cardonald Parish Church have commenced mid-week services in the Church and in due course will be looking at opening up the halls for organisations to use. The Company staff have also been discussing the actions that are required to make Jubilee House Covid -19 safe which includes regular cleaning of the hall, signage that will allow social distancing to be adhered to and hand sanitisers in each of the halls.
Given the September weekend and School October week are almost upon us the action plan we have in place should allow us to commence some activities from week beginning 19th. October be it in Jubilee House or the Church Halls. This is obviously reliant on many things outwith our control i.e. further restrictions in the Glasgow area, government lockdowns, guidance from Boys' Brigade national etc.
I appreciate that this is a frustrating time for boys, parents and staff but please be assured that the staff are doing all we can to get Boys’ Brigade activities up and running.
