Wearing a uniform is comfy and practical. It means no one feels uncomfortable or left out, and it helps everyone feel part of the group. Our uniform consists of a sweatshirt or shirt that you can sew badges on and a coloured scarf or ‘necker’ to represent our group. There are lots of other optional accessories you can wear, such as hats, hoodies, trousers or shorts.
A uniform can be bought from our online shop. If you’re not sure where to start, leaders can give you more information about what to buy. They may even know if someone is selling a uniform second-hand.
We charge a fee (called subscriptions or subs) to cover the costs of running our group and our regular meetings – which covers building costs, admin, insurance and materials for activities. There are sometimes extra charges for special activities, camps and events. We try to keep our subs as low as possible so that anyone can come to Scouts.
You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them! Buy your uniform from our Scout store.
