Uniform

The Scout Association is a worldwide uniformed organisation and we therefore at 1st Broxbourne expect every member to wear a uniform every week & when attending additional events/activities outside of the normal section meetings.

There will however be the occasional exception when those involved will be told that uniform is not required for the one evening/activity, but the general rule is uniform is required unless told otherwise.
 
The uniform consists of a Beaver or Cub jumper, or Scout Shirt (depending on what section the child is in) together with navy Scout Activity Trousers, the Group Scarf and uniform badges.  In addition to these, we also have our own Group t-shirt or Polo shirt which can be worm under the Cub/Beaver jumpers or as an alternative for any Section during the hot months, or for certain activities when formal uniform is not required.
 
Beavers and Cubs are issued a group T-shirt when they are invested in the section and the scout section order up individual T-shirts or polo shirts once a year for all members of the troop.
  
The Group scarf and initial badges are presented to each member on their investiture at no extra charge. For badges earnt and awarded within each section there is no additional charge (unless replacements are requested), as they are covered by the termly subscriptions that are paid by members of the Group.  Please be aware that all badges issued, be it at investiture or along the way, must be sewn/stuck onto the uniform in the correct positions, as they are a very important part of the uniform.
 
Once a member has purchased their uniform, they will then be asked to learn the Promise for their Section, before undergoing their investiture into the Scout Association and the Group.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
