Scouts starts promptly at the given time. We take a register each evening whether in or out of the HQ. We aim to finish on time although circumstances may lead to slight delays. Parents are welcome to watch presentations and investitures which occur at the end of evenings from time to time. At scouts age we expect them to be responsible for how they get home but we will wait with any scout who is waiting to be picked up. They should not leave alone if they are expecting to be collected.
