Uniform

uniform Scouting is a uniformed organisation. When you join, you need to buy the uniform from the Scout Shop before you are invested (normally a few weeks after joining).

Warrington East Scout Shop is open Tuesday evening 7pm – 9pm and Saturday morning 10am – 12 noon at Vale Owen Road (off Orford Green), Orford, Warrington WA2 8PG  (Tel: 01925 634510). This shop is run by volunteers and all profits are returned back into scouting and guiding in the Warrington District.

You can also order uniforms online at http://www.scoutshops.com/

Everyone in the 4th Lymm / 18th Warrington East has a blue and white neckerchief held in place with a woggle and at least the following three badges (once invested): the World Membership Badge (purple circle), the Cheshire County / Warrington East District Badge (a badge with a wheatsheaf and a rose on the right sleeve) and the Group Nametape (top of the right sleeve).  You will be presented with these items by the leader when you are invested.

If you have just moved up from Beavers to Cubs, or from Cubs to Scouts, then you may wear your old uniform until you are ready to be invested. Please continue to use your old neckerchief. If you want to keep your old uniform intact please let a leader know so they can give you duplicates of your staged activity badges, participation awards, international badges and bronze / silver or gold awards.

You may purchase replacements for lost neckers and woggles (~£5) from the Warrington Scout shop.

Optional items are marked as such below and you do not need to buy them. If you do not buy the optional dark blue activity trousers, then please come along in dark trousers suitable for outdoor activities. You may want to get a second-hand uniform from someone who is moving up into the next section – ask the leaders to put you in contact. You can also purchase good quality second hand uniform very cheaply online.

All items of uniform, including neckers and anything else that your child is likely to take off, must be clearly named.

As well as the uniform below, there are optional waterproofs, fleeces, hats, hoodies, belts, t-shirts, polo shirts, socks and caps. The Scout shop also has a range of other scout branded rucksacks, cups, badges, books. In fact all things Scouting, and if they haven’t got it, then ask Eddie Johnson and he’ll order it for you.
