Local Shops

All profits from our local volunteer shops go straight into funding local activities, adventures, resources and equipment

Every item not brought locally means money lost for local guiding. Presently, one in three guiding items are purchased externally – and we want to change that so please support your local shop.

Visiting your local volunteer shop enables you to be able to try on uniform before you buy it; and you don’t have to pay for postage as you would do buying online.
