In September the scout Head quarters announced the opening of a new section called Squirrels

"We couldn’t be prouder to announce Squirrels: our new programme for 4 and 5 year olds. It’s also a historic milestone for the UK Scout movement. As the first new age range in Scouts for 35 years, we’re helping young people gain skills for life where and when it matters most.

Following two years of pilots and pioneering work in Northern Ireland, 200 Squirrel Dreys have opened in locations across the UK. We’re prioritising communities most affected by the pandemic, and supporting families and young people who’ve fallen behind.

We’re particularly proud to welcome those young people from underrepresented communities, including those who haven’t tried Scouts before."

As yet here at 9th Worcester(Hallow) we have not considered opening this section, but within the Worcester district there are a couple of Dreys that are being considered.
