As leaders, when we talk about uniform and kit, one of the most common things we get asked for is "Where can I get that from?".
So we've tried to bring together some of the essentials of Scouting and put them all in one place, with the aim of helping you to get them sorted just that little bit easier.
Some of the links below are "Amazon affiliate" links, this basically means that anything you purchase via them will raise a little bit of money for the group.
One of the main things you're going to need will be uniform. Uniform consists of a jumper for Beavers and Cubs or a Shirt for Scouts. Everybody will also need a Necker, which you will receive along with your badges, at your investiture.
On special occasions we may ask you to wear “Full Uniform”, the only difference here is that in addition to your jumper and Necker we also want you to wear smart trousers/shorts and shoes (most people wear school uniform trousers/shorts and shoes).
Uniform can be purchased from one of the following sources, ranked by price (low to high as of 2017):
- From Amazon.co.uk via our Uniform page, we will receive a small percentage of your purchase.
- By making a trip to the Trading Post in Norwich (or they can deliver for £2.85).
- Ordering online via shop.scouts.org.uk (£3.99 delivery).
Some sections have section specific clothing that are personal to our group (the Scouts have hoodies with their names printed across the back). Occasionally for specific events, we will produce special one-off T-shirts or hoodies. Both of these can be found on our Clothing page
Occasionally we leaders will buy something for camps or activities and think you might find it useful. If so we will add it to our Equipment Page.
Bought something and think it may be useful to other people? why not let us know:
