The requirements for uniform and promise making varies from section to section for a member who is moving up. In general, there will be a transition period arranged where a member attends both sections in their last month or so before they move up. This should be arranged by the section leaders, but please feel free to ask. During this transition period, the member will wear the uniform of the section they are leaving. Once the transition has been completed, the member will officially leave the junior section and, if they have completed the Moving on Award, they will be ready to be invested into Cubs, or in the case of Scouts, they will have a little bit of additional work to do before they are ready to make the new promise. The group necker will not be worn by the individual until the promise has been made, although group badges can we worn on the new uniform. If an individual has been awarded a Chief Scouts Badge in a section, this can be worn on their uniform in the next section (until a higher badge has been awarded). Additionally, any staged activity badges such as First Aid, Swimming, Camping etc, are also transferable onto their new uniform. Details of the requirements for the moving on badges can be found on the Scout website https://members.scouts.org.uk/supportresources. To get to the detail, click on the link, select the section the individual is moving FROM, select "Badges and Awards", then select "Core Badges".
Subs can currently be paid by cash (in a named, sealed envelope please), and must be paid within the first 2 weeks of term unless a specific arrangement has been made with a leader or the treasurer. Failure to pay subs within the first 2 weeks of term, without prior arrangement, will mean that a child may be removed from the section nominal role and their place could be given to someone on the waiting list..
Bank transfers can be made using the following details (note the new details)
Please ensure the name of your child is included in the reference along with what is being paid for ie camp, subs etc. Please note that we do not accept cheques for payment.
