Please find an updated leaflet attached to promote our district’s scout shop, which is open every 7.00pm – 8.30pm every Tuesday during school term time. A set of hard copy leaflets will be posted to section leaders, arriving next week, to give out to parents.
Please circulate this leaflet to the parents in your section, unit or Scout Group.
The shop sells the uniform jumpers and trousers for youth members as well as badges and resources for leaders.
Now accepting payment by debit/credit card
Following last year’s survey, we have now introduced the option to pay by credit & debit card in the shop.
Why buy from your local scout shop?
Something many people don’t know is that the Scout Shop is generates an average profit of £2,000 per year which is re-invested locally into resouces, equipment and initiaves to support local Scout Groups provide a wider range of opportunities.
The profit from 2019 has been used to:
- purchase 8 x GPS units to support groups run the navigator activity badge
- purchase DIY tools so that Cub packs and Scout troops can run the DIY & model maker activity badges
- fund a district-wide archery competition, ensuring very Scout has the opportunity to participate in an archery session this Summer term
Thanks for your support – we’re looking forward to an even busier year in 2020!
