Scouts

An important message to parents & guardians

We encourage Scouts to show independence and be responsible for themselves wherever possible and appropriate. It is therefore really important that you encourage your youngster to read this update every week, so that they can ‘Be Prepared’ on their Troop Night. We greatly appreciate your support with this.

Please read through this update so you can ‘Be Prepared’. To earn 10 bonus Scout of the Month points this week answer the question “how much are handmade woggles?”  Write the answer on a piece of paper together with your name and hand in the paper when you arrive at the Scout Hut on Troop night.

This week at Scouts

This week at Scouts we are going to be having a games night.

If the fire exit door is closed please follow the path and enter the Scout Hut through the door into the foyer on the other side of the building.

Other important information

It is important that everyone wears full and correct uniform. Please remember that the uniform rules are the same for both girls and boys. Black, dark grey or navy socks and black smart footwear are compulsory uniform wear for all Scouts. Please remember that uniform shirts must be worn tucked into trousers. Leggings or very tight trousers are not correct uniform.

Please make sure you wear a t-shirt under your uniform shirt. If you wish to change out of your uniform trousers after flag break then please make sure that you are wearing a pair of shorts under your uniform trousers and you bring some old trousers to change into.

If the footwear you are wearing with your uniform is unsuitable for activities then please bring along some more suitable footwear to change into after flag break.

Please make sure you bring a warm jumper, sweatshirt or similar with you to Scouts. You will also need a warm waterproof coat. We may be working outdoors and you will need to stay warm and comfortable. You might find a warm hat and a pair of gloves handy as well. Even if we are indoors it may be colder than normal as at times we need to have the outside doors open to improve ventilation because of Covid. Apart from Flagbreak and Flagdown, Scouts are welcome to wear their warm clothes over their uniform whether indoors or outdoors.

Don’t forget to bring along a bottle filled with water or a suitable non-fizzy drink.

You need to bring along a backpack to put your drinks bottle, warm clothes and similar in.

Please remember that mobile phones are not allowed at Scouts. It is best that you leave your mobile at home. If you feel you must bring your mobile with you it must be turned off and put in your bolsa or daysac, as soon as you come through the gate. It must remain in your bag until you have gone through the gate at the end of the night.
