For those moving up from Cubs, initially Cub uniform is fine. For those who are new to Scouting when joining Scouts, then ‘play clothes’ is absolutely fine.
Only once they have settled into the group do we ask for them to attend in a Scout shirt. A Scout shirt can be purchased directly from the Scout Shop that runs from our building or from Dales in the village.
The Scout Shop does offer some pre-loved uniform as well as new uniform; purchases from here also help towards supporting the Scout Group.
Once “invested”, your child will also be given their first badges. For those moving up from Cubs, they will continue to wear their existing necker, for new members a group necker (yellow with a black edge) will also be presented.
Details of where to place Scout Badges can be found here: Diagram
It is worth noting that only certain badges awarded in Cubs should be moved onto the Scout uniform. Only the Chief Scout Silver award and the staged activity badges should be moved across (for example nights away). If in doubt, please just ask one of the leaders.
