Beavers Uniform PDF Print E-mail

Every Beaver is required to wear the correct uniform. This consists of a pair of navy blue Scout 'combat' trousers, a blue Beaver Scout polo shirt and a blue Beaver Scout jumper. Anyone who joins the Ockendon Beaver Scout pack is given a brand new green and black neckerchief with a woggle when they are invested (join the group). All Beavers also wear black shoes - trainers or school shoes and black socks.

The trousers, polo shirt and jumper can be bought from a number of outlets but if you buy it through the district Scout shop, then we, as a pack, get some of the money given back to us. It is run entirely by volunteers is open 10.00am - 12.30pm each Saturday morning.

The address for the Scout shop is:


The Thurrock District Scout and Guide Shop
Alf Lowne Scout Centre
Richmond Road
Grays
Essex
RM17 6DN
Tel: 01375 891445

See here for the link to the shop www.thurrockscouts.org.uk 

 All Beavers work on their activity and challenge badges which are then sewn onto their Beaver jumper - activity badges go on the left sleeve and challenge badges go on the right chest area. Beavers get the chance to earn many badges and each has its own place on the uniform.
