  1. To attend short 1:1 and small group online meetings up to once a week
  2. To attend a meeting in person in your own time in the early winter 2020
  3. To participate in community investigation (online, by email and phone - to arrange a community project)
  4. To work with others to provide a project assisted by your project co-ordinator, which may require (if you choose) you to work with your team members to provide a service for your community. It will be run within government guidelines.
  5. To be prepared to attend adventurous and challenging activity, possibly on a day-to-day basis, hopefully on a short expedition or residential basis, government guidance allowing, in the spring term 2021.
