Scouting is a Uniformed Association
We consider that wearing a uniform is an expression of belonging to an organisation that we can be proud to be part of. Some Groups have chosen to use different options within the approved Scout Association range so you should consult the Beaver, Cub, Scout or Explorer Leader of the Group or Unit that you are joining to find out which items they require as normal uniform. Remember that you will usually get the Scarf (necker) from the Leaders of the Group, as there can be large variations in colour between different suppliers.
Most Groups operate a second-hand uniform shop, so it is worth asking.
Our local uniform suppliers are:
Harpers Bazaar in Malvern Link. They carry a good stock of both Junior and Adult shirts, blouses and trousers. Tel 01684 568723. 263, Worcester Road, Malvern, WR14 1AA. Link: www.harpersmalvern.co.uk
Schooltogs in the middle of Malvern. They carry most of the Shirts and Blouses for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, although not for Explorer Scouts or Adults. Tel 01684 578785. 32, Church Street, Malvern, WR14 2AZ. Link: http://www.schooltogs.co.uk
