One of the questions we get asked is “where can I find out more about badges?” All our sections include badge attainment in their programmes, but there are lots more that your child can work towards away from the section meeting… just bring in the required evidence for a leader to review. Your child can also help influence the section programme by letting leaders know what badges they are interested in doing; we can’t promise to do everything asked but if you don’t ask then we won’t be able to look at it!

Guiding Sections have a great “Badge Finder” : https://www.girlguiding.org.uk/…/our-badges-…/badge-finder/…

 Scouting sections also have their badges on the internet.

Beavers: https://members.scouts.org.uk/supportresources/search/…
Cubs: https://members.scouts.org.uk/supportresources/search/…
Scouts: https://members.scouts.org.uk/supportresources/search/…

Scouting section members can review badge attainment on an ongoing basis through My.Scout on the OSM system.

Supporting us…
Tell us how we are doing!  Of course we love to know what we are getting right, but it’s also important to know what we can improve as well (especially if you can help us with making the
improvement!).  Please do take the time to get to know the section leaders when you drop of and collect your young people from meetings… even a simple “Thank you” can go a long way after an evening of co-ordinating energetic youngsters.   Remember we are all volunteers!

Join in, lend a hand.
Every little bit of help we get is appreciated.   Do you have skills or a special hobby you could share with us?  Can you manage projects, help with DIY, help tidy the garden, butter some sarnies on camp?   Let us know how you can help.   Don’t wait to be asked!

Attend our AGM events and parades.
Details of these events go out in advance; and it’s a great way for us to be seen in the community and take pride in who we are and what we do. We ask for full attendance at these events from all our sections.
