Uniform, t-shirts, sweat shirts and baseball caps
Each Section has its own uniform. For Beavers this is a turquoise sweatshirt, for Cubs a green sweat shirt, Scouts a teal green shirt and Explorers wear a beige shirt.
Beavers, Cubs and Scout wear the Group scarf, which is royal blue. Explorers have their own scarf. Activity trousers are also available, but school trousers are quite acceptable.
There are also T shirts/shorts/fleeces etc but they are entirely optional.
The uniform may be purchased from the a number of locations including:
- PMG Schoolwear, 40 Westgate Steet, Ipswich IP1 3ED. Tel: (01473) 212050, email@example.com, www.pmgschoolwear.co.uk
- The official scout shop - shop.scouts.org.uk/uniforms
- One Stop Scouting Ltd (run by Scouters but a trading company) - www.onestopscouting.co.uk/scout-uniform
When a young person joins a section we advise that the uniform is only purchased when they are ready to make their promise (usually after 3 to 4 weeks).
When a member moves from one section to another they may wear their old uniform until they acquire the new uniform. The scarf should not be worn until the young person has made their promise in each section.
Second Hand Uniforms / Recycling Uniforms
Occasionally the Group has second hand uniforms available. Enquiries should be made to your section leader or there may be items of uniform hanging in the foyer at the Scout Hall. If you can make use of these please help yourself and if you wish to make a donation pop it in Celia’s post box in the hall.
If you have any old uniform that you no longer need you are welcome to recycle it in this way.
Group T-Shirts, Sweatshirts and Baseball Caps
The Group also has its own royal blue T-shirt and sweat shirt and baseball caps, which may be worn by members and supporters of the Group. If you are interested in buying one please contact Celia Comber: tel: (01473) 622815 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The T-Shirts cost £7.50 each.
