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).

The Waterloovile District Scout Shop is located at Denmead Scout HQ and is normally open on alternating Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings. The scout shop dates can be downloaded here. You can also order uniforms online at http://shop.scouts.org.uk

Each group has a different scarf, or necker as it known, and at Hambledon we wear a yellow and blue one. At your investiture you will be presented with the following badges : the World Membership Badge (purple circle), the Hampshire County Badge (black rectangle on right sleeve), the Waterlooville District Badge (another black rectangle on the right sleeve) and the group name tape to go above them.

If you have just moved up from Beavers to Cubs, or from Cubs to Scouts, then you can transfer some of your old badges to your new uniform, such as the highest of each staged badges (blue circular ones), participation badges (star with number in centre), and Chief Scouts Award, but don’t wear your necker until your investiture.

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.

All items of uniform, including scarves 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, caps and we have produced a Group T-Shirt which is not part of the uniform but can be purchased and worn for Scouting and non-Scouting events.
