It is worth waiting a couple of weeks to make sure that new members are settled and that Scouting is for them before buying a uniform. We stock all the items you need in our group shop so please speak to your leader when you're ready to purchase.
We also have a District shop that is open Saturdays from 10:00 till 13:00 and is hoping to setup online purchasing soon. Alternatively, Bournemouth Scouts have a very well stocked shop http://www.bournemouth-scouts.org.uk/shop/
Additionally, the full range of uniform and optional accessories is available on-line - use the 'shop' tab.
2nd Wimborne Scout Group wear a burgundy coloured scarf with grey trim. Mostly called a ‘necker’, the necker and the woggle that holds it in place, are presented to the young person at their investiture into the Colony, Pack or Troop.
The scarf is only available from the group shop.
When a new member is ready to join officially, they make their promise during a short ceremony called an ‘investiture’ where they receive the Membership Award to show that they belong to the world-wide scout movement. The Promise is based on the shared values of all scouts, but has a number of variations in wording, depending on each young person's personal faith and beliefs, which the Leaders will be happy to discuss with each new member.
We ask that all members to learn their promise off-by-heart, as it is important that they try their best to live by it. However we understand that people can get nervous when having to speak in front of others, so during their investiture they will be asked to repeat their promise after a Leader.
The Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sections of this website show details of where all of the badges go on their uniform. There are also sheets for each section that provide information about the investiture ceremony, as well as details of the Promise, Law and Motto that are applicable. These can be downloaded by clicking on the appropriate section.
