  • Scout uniform can be purchased from the Scout Shop on Newton Road, Urmston. It is open every Saturday from 10am to 12.30pm. All profits from the shop directly benefitour District and so it is important we use it whenever possible rather than on-line.

  • Please remember to ensure the scouts always bring a coat, small torch and a spare pair of shoes/boots to wear outside to prevent too much mud coming inside.

  • If a Scout misses meetings for 4 weeks in a row without contacting me, I will assume they have left and their place will be offered to our waiting list.

    As part of the behaviour contact, scout leaders will adopt a “yellow and red card” disciplinary system. Any red card issued will result in the scout not being allowed to attend the next weekly meeting. A red card can be issued in 3 different ways:

    • Serious incident leading to a straight red card
    • 2 yellow cards being issued in a single night

Collating 3 yellow cards over a 5 week period
