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

The Scout Shop is based at Moor House Adventure Centre, just off the A690 next to Houghton-le-Spring. The shop is open as follows.

Wednesday 10 – 6pm
Saturday 10am – 4pm

You can also order uniforms online at http://www.scoutshops.com/

Everyone in at 19th Durham has a red and blue neckerchief and at least the following three badges (once invested): the World Membership Badge (purple circle), the Durham City & District Badge (rectangle, half blue half black on right sleeve) and the Group Badge (on the back of the necker). Also, everyone should have the group name tape on the right shoulder, Which reads 19th Durham Scouts Group – Nevilles Cross. 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 are available for £8.00. Woggles also available from 50p – £1.00 depending on the type of woggle.

Optional items are marked as such below and you do not need to buy them. If you do not buy the optional dark blue activity trousers, then please come along in dark trousers suitable for outdoor activities.
