    National Trust

    Wayne,

    TSA may wish to be aware of this, which I also posted in Scouting Talk, so the appropriate representations can be made:

    People may want to be aware that the National Trust are piloting making charges and requiring licensing for outdoor activities for which a fee is payable on their land. This may affect Scouting (e.g. for climbing etc) - please see below.

    Thanks

    Neil

    Hi Neil,

    Sorry for the short delay but I wanted to make some enquiries. It's not something we had heard about previously effecting us. Our understanding is that it shouldn't impact non profit making events e.g. section activities, even if a fee is charged for their participation.

    The activities team will keep a watching brief on it and would welcome any particular feedback from leaders encountering local charges etc.

    Many thanks again,
    Wayne

    Thanks. It is worth noting that the document attached to it specifically mentions charities and non profit organisations as included, so definitely one to watch, and perhaps for TSA to put in a representation.
