Uniform

As a uniformed organisation, we wear uniform at all meetings other than in exceptional circumstances; if you are joining other than from the Scout Troop, you would not be expected to buy uniform immediately, but we would expect you to have bought it within a couple of months of joining. Uniform means trousers or shorts, belt and long sleeved shirt or blouse (not the polo shirt) – only official Scout Association uniform may be worn – and not items that may look similar to it. We present new members with a Group Scarf and woggle.

Uniform can be obtained from a number of District Scout Shops around Bromley. A full listing of the district shops can be found here.

Church Parade

We attend Church Parade once a month at the Methodist Church in Hawes Lane where we hold our regular meetings. This is a special family service and parents are welcome to also attend. The services are usually on the second Sunday of the month 10.15am – 11.30am.

The Scout Promise

“On My Honour, I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen,
To help other people
And to keep the Scout Law”

The Scout Law:

  1. A Scout is to be trusted.
  2. A Scout is loyal.
  3. A Scout is friendly and considerate.
  4. A Scout belongs to the worldwide family of Scouts.
  5. A Scout has courage in all difficulties.
  6. A Scout makes good use of time and is careful of possessions and property.
  7. A Scout has self-respect and respect for others
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
Bear Grylls, Chief Scout Bear Grylls
