Cubs uniform 

and badge placement

What do Cubs wear?

Cub uniform consists of a green sweatshirt with your badges sewn on, 2nd Thatcham Group polo (Burgundy) and a coloured scarf or 'necker’ to represent your local group. There are lots of other optional accessories you can wear such as hats, hoodies, navy blue trousers or shorts.


Your Cubs will receive their necker when they are invested.


Why is uniform important?

Wearing a uniform is comfy and practical. It means no one feels uncomfortable or left out and helps everyone feel part of the Pack. It also gives you a place to show off all the badges you earn.


This complete uniform is normally only worn at formal events (e.g.local parades and ceremonies On a routine weekday evening we would expect your child to attend in uniform only from the waist up and for some adventurous activities we may not require uniform at all.  Guidance on the uniform requirements is provided with the details of each forthcoming event or activity.


Where can I buy it?

Uniforms can be bought from the Scout Store online or from a local supplier. If you’re stuck, ask adult volunteers to tell you more about what to buy and where to buy it. If cost is an issue, they will be more than happy to help.
