Uniform

Scouting is a uniformed organisation and all members are expected to be in the correct uniform each weekly meeting and scouting events unless otherwise stated.

All members should take responsibility in looking after their uniform and arrive dressed smartly and presentably including their scarf ironed and rolled neatly as well as having all badges sewn on up to date.

When joining the group or moving section there is no need to purchase uniform for the first couple of weeks while you settle in. Once your have your uniform you can be invested. As a guide this is normal 4 – 6 weeks after joining.
