You can download a copy of our Welcome to 1st Bedworth Scouts information pack here. The information gives you lots of important information that you need to know for Troop Night.

What to wear

Scouts should always dress appropriately for the weather. Activities may be held outdoors even if it is wet.

On some nights during the summer holidays Scouts do not have to wear Scout uniform. Instead of uniform Scouts can wear ‘Group Blues’. If wearing ‘Group Blues’ Scouts should wear a blue 1st Bedworth t-shirt or hoodie together with whatever other clothing is appropriate for the weather
and activity.

Transport

On some meeting nights we are not meeting at the Scout Hut but at other locations such as Scout campsites. On these nights parents/carers are asked to arrange to drop off and pick up Scouts from these locations as we cannot provide transport.

We encourage car sharing among parents and carers. If you are able to offer a lift to another Scout please let us know by emailing your contact details to [email protected] at least the week before the activity. If you need help with transport please let us know by emailing your contact details to [email protected]. We will do our best to match up offers with needs and put you in touch with each other to make your own arrangements.

Absence

Many Scout Groups do not meet during the summer school holidays, but at 1st Bedworth we do our best to run a full programme for our members. Please assist the leadership team by always letting us know if Scout is unable to attend a meeting night. This is just as important during the school holidays.

Please give as much notice as possible, but always try to at least let us know before the start of the Troop Night. Please let us know by emailing [email protected] or texting 07710113291.
