Uniform, Costs & Fee's
Wearing a uniform is comfy and practical. It means no one feels uncomfortable or left out and helps everyone feel part of the group. Our uniform consists of a sweatshirt or shirt that you can sew badges on and a coloured scarf or ‘necker’ to represent your local group. There are lots of other optional accessories you can wear such as hats, hoodies, trousers or shorts.
Official uniform should be purchased from the local district scout shop. This can be found at 28 Alver Rd, Gosport PO12 1QR. As this is run by local volunteers the shops opening times are Saturdays 9.30-1pm and Tuesday’s 4pm-7pm. By purchasing your uniform from here it help support scouting across Gosport. Should you be unable to make it to the local shop you can also purchase items online from www.shop.scouts.org.uk/.
Each section wears a different uniform. These are shown below. These are to be worn with smart trousers and school shoes for official events. More information will be given as we approach these official events. If you’re not sure where to start, leaders can give you more information about what to buy. They may even know if someone is selling a uniform second-hand. No individual should be prevented from taking part in scouting. If the purchasing of a uniform is something that you are unable to do please discuss this with your section leader as soon as possible and they can help you moving forward.
Badge placement is often a question we get asked on a regular basis. Please click on the relevant image above to see a diagram explaining where all the badges go.
Neckerchiefs identify us as 6th within Gosport and each group across the country has their own style. Due to this you can purchase replacement neckerchief and badge from the online store here. Uniform Easy Neckerchief Store. We also have a badge that goes on the back of your neckerchief. This will be provided in your welcome pack.

To cover the costs of delivering high quality scouting, insurance and building costs we charge a subscription of £12 per month. Although we do not meet during the summer holidays this subscription will continue to help spread the cost. All our administration and finance is controlled via a safe and secure online system called Online Scout Manager. You will be sent a link to join this from your section leader when you join. This system will handle all payments that you will need to make to the group. If this is a problem please speak with your section leader at the earliest convenience.
Activities such as camps, day trips etc will be charged additionally and are not included in the monthly subscription.
