All young people should have the following official Scouts uniform on which to sew their badges and a red and yellow St John’s necker which they are presented with when they are invested. This should be worn for indoor sessions and special occasions:

Beavers – turquoise jumper

Cubs – green jumper

Scouts – scout shirt

Uniform can be bought online at The Scout Store and other sites, but for the best prices and an opportunity to try on, do visit the volunteer-run Scout Shop in Tonbridge. Check their website for opening times.

St John’s ‘Blues’

St John’s Scout Group also has a bespoke ‘blues’ range of clothing just for our scout group.

The blue St John’s t-shirt or polo shirt is part of the Beaver & Cub uniform and should be worn under their uniform jumpers on a regular evening session. There’s no need to buy a Beavers or Cubs logo T-shirt as well.  We hope this saves you money as it can be worn all the way through the age groups and just replaced as and when needed.

The St John’s ‘blues’ were designed as a cost-effective way to save having to replace T-shirts so often and a practical alternative for outdoor activities and camps. Particularly for Scouts, whose uniform does not include a jumper, blues hoodies are a great option so that uniform can be kept smart for inside sessions and special occasions. 

Section Assistant, Karen Rose, puts in a bulk order every term to save on delivery costs. Get in touch via the Facebook page or your leader.

Badges and where to sew them…

Our badges and awards are part of what makes us Scouts. Not only do our young people love earning them, they help add structure, purpose and variety to the programme.

Chief Scout Awards are the highest awards you can achieve in each age section. To earn it, you’ll need complete all of the challenge awards, as well as activity badges. We aim to focus on one challenge award plus a few activity badges each term.
