Our Uniform

Most uniform items are available for loan or purchase from the Group, and the cost of our entire uniform is usually less than the price of a single shirt from the larger association.  The Group loans neckers to Group members, although these may also be purchased if preferred.  Members will usually be expected to provide their own suitable trousers and footwear.

Parents are responsible for the safekeeping of any uniform that we issue the Beaver, Wolf Cub or Scout with, and for ensuring that borrowed uniform is returned to the Group when no longer required.  It is important that uniform items are looked after and only used for Air Scout activities. Scouts will become proud of their uniform and are encouraged to keep it in good order themselves.

Please note that failure to return loaned items could result in a small claims court action being undertaken.
