We are pleased to announce that we are making plans to re-open your Scout and Guide Shop following a year of running it from home due to the Covid restrictions. To keep everyone safe we are introducing the following Guidelines which will be reassessed on a regular basis.


  • We will open Saturdays 9 to 12 only until July summer break and reassess the situation for September.
  • Badge orders are to be on a pre order basis only.
  • All orders for collection are to be placed by 7pm on the Friday evening at the latest. They will then be available for collection on the Saturday morning.
  • All Leaders orders to be pre ordered, we will then have them ready for collection.
  • We will confirm order and cost.
  • Payment for orders to be collected will be cheque or card on collection unless your Group has a Credit account. BAC’s available if you wish to pay in advance.
  • Orders to be posted out are to be paid for in advance unless your Group has a Credit account. Postage will now be added. Orders will be posted on a Tuesday or Friday.
  • No badges will be available if Leaders just turn up due to Covid regulations as badges will not be stored on site.
  • One Volunteer to man collections and payment at Badge Shop.
  • One Volunteer at Uniform shop to control customers in and out, one volunteer to assist parents, one volunteer to operate laptop.
  • We will operate a one family / bubble in, one out system for uniforms.
