Blog | Webshop Opened
16/09/2022 By Helen Williamson

We are pleased to announce that we have arranged a webshop with a local supplier where you can order group Tshirts or Squirrel uniforms.  IT IS NOW OPEN for the first order period- if you want to order please do so before October 5th. The next order period will be in January 2023  Click here  to visit the shop 

All other uniform tops can be bought from the local Scout shop see shop page for details

To keep the costs as reasonable as possible, without imposing a minimum number of items, the webshop works with 'order periods'  This means you can shop between 2 dates and once the final order date arrives, they make up and deliver all the items (a couple of weeks later) to our uniform coordinator for further distribution. 

Previously we had to order and store large boxes of groupT-Shirts, which took years to sell. 

If anyone outside 1st Brussels wishes to order something, please speak to us first about the cost of postage/delivery elsewhere.

All uniforms  are of course available from the UK scout shop but from Belgium the postage and tax costs and delays Post Brexit are prohibitive. If you travel to the UK, you may wish to order and collect while there.  I understand  many UK groups buy red school uniform sweatshirts from highstreet vendors for Squirrels. We can arrange a Squirrel badge.

Queen Elizabeth II
08/09/2022 By Helen Williamson

British Scouting Overseas extends its deepest condolences on the death of our patron, monarch and sovereign - Queen Elizabeth II. As we remember Her Majesty, we give thanks that she has been Patron of The Scout Association since she came to the throne 70 years ago. We also recall with gratitude the support she has extended to Scouting  throughout her long reign. 

Most especially we remember her strong commitment to duty and service to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.  

Our sympathy and prayers are extended to the entire Royal family. The loss of such a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother will be deeply felt.
