Uniform

Once your child has been with us for a few weeks, she or he will need a uniform;  uniform should be worn to every meeting for every section.

New members should wear comfy clothes for their first few meetings, suitable for sporty games.

What to buy?

Trousers

Dark blue activity trousers are needed for all Beavers, Cubs & Scouts (and should be worn to all meetings unless specified otherwise). These can either be the official scout trousers or you can buy unbranded ones from outdoors stores (just make sure they are dark blue).

Scouts should own and wear a scout belt each week.

Necker

Every invested member must wear a necker to every meeting. We provide the first one but if you need a new one,you will have to pay for it
