Uniform

Scouting is a uniformed organisation. When you join, you need to buy the uniform from the Cardiff Scout Shop before you are invested (normally a few weeks after joining).

The local Scout shop where you can try on uniform to ensure the correct sizing before you buy is the Cardiff Scout shop.  It is located at:

The Hub
Maitland Street
Gabalfa
Cardiff
CF14 3JU

Opening Times (term time only)

Saturday 10.00 am until 12.00 pm

Tuesday 5.00pm until 7.00pm

You can order through www.cardiffandvalescoutshop.co.uk

All orders through the Cardiff Scout shop donates 10% to the section 

You can also order uniforms online at https://shop.scouts.org.uk/uniforms

Everyone in the 1st Creigiau has a lemon neckerchief and the following badges (once invested):

  • the World Membership Badge (purple circle),
  • the Cardiff Area & Cardiff West District Badge (the ‘big’ black and white rectangle on right sleeve),
  • the diamond Group Badge (on the back of the necker).
  • Dragons (for each shoulder)
  • Also, everyone should have the group name tag on the right shoulder. You will be presented with these items by the leader when you are invested.

If you have just moved up from Beavers to Cubs, or from Cubs to Scouts, then you should wear your old uniform until you are invested. Please transfer your old badges to your new uniform and continuing to use your old neckerchief.

Replacements for lost neckers and woggles are available from your leader.

You may want to get a second-hand uniform from someone who is moving up into the next section – ask the leaders to put you in contact.

All items of uniform, including scarves and anything else that your child is likely to take off, must be clearly named.
