Coronavirus Up Date

Welcome to our Covid-19 Page, here you will find all the current details on how 4th Bramhall (St Michael’s) is operating.

Even though COVID restrictions have been relaxed/removed we will still be keeping some measures in place. Please read our COVID risk assessment before you get to the Scout Centre, each Section/Hire will have to do their own risk assessment before they use the building and it must start with the measures we already have in place. Please send your risk assessment to

We recommend keeping to 2m social distancing where possible and using a face covering where it is not possible for now – however this choice is interlay down to the individual.

The 2m marks will stay on the floors and all the hand washing posters and hand sanitiser will stay in place along with the toilet control for now.

The main points to follow

  • If you have been in close contact with someone with COVID and do not have to isolate please take a raped flow test 1 hour before attending Scouts
  • The forecourt will stay pedestrianised with a one-way system to and from the front door.
  • Please carry on parking in St Michael’s Car Park so not to block the Avenue.
  • The entrance hall MUST be kept clear at all times
  • Please use the sanitiser in the entrance hall to clean your hands before entering the Main Hall or Upstairs and also on exiting the building to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
