New members are encouraged to try between 4 to 6 sessions, to get a good idea of what weekly meetings are like.

Uniform & Leader Chat


New members will have an opportunity to have a chat with section leader and assistant.  We will take this opportunity to answer any questions they may have and discuss investiture etc. 


Once Uniform is purchased we move on to official joining ceremony



This is the traditional joining ceremony, the new members will say the section promise with section leaders and be given the group scarf and become official member of the the World Scout Movement
