The Trading Post

The Trading Post is now closed to the public.

We are still active behind the scenes and can sell you uniform, badges and all the usual Scouting and Guiding essentials.
To order, simply send us an email to and we can post out any items you require. We are running on skeleton staff, but will get back to you ASAP.

Postal Service

It’s always best to try on uniform if you can, but you can’t get in to visit our shop, we can post your order directly to you, wherever you are for usually only £3.20. We can take a card payment over the phone and post out your order the next day.

Loyalty Vouchers

We usually issue loyalty vouchers for each £10 spent which parents should hand in to their group/unit leaders to be redeemed at the end of the year. This means all profits from sales at The Trading Post go directly back to local Scouting and Guiding.

After consultation we are sad to advise that the issue of Trading Post vouchers will be suspended. Again due to Coronavirus we do not envisage any surplus funds being raised this year to support this very popular and beneficial reward system. For that we are sorry but the scheme only works where we can return a surplus to pass onto the groups.
Please do keep your vouchers. We may be able to offer something when we return to full business.

We thank you for all your support.
