BBS and BGS Member Discounts

We sell the official uniform of the BBS and BGS Association. However, we are happy to sell our uniform to the general public as an undiscounted rate.

BBS Scouters and other members (or parents and guardians of those members) are entitled to order uniform at a discounted rate. To do so, when registering a new account set the ‘Customer Group’ to ‘BBS/BGS Members’ and enter your scout group name in the ‘Scout Group Name’ field. Before we can allow orders to be made, we will need to validate your account by contacting your Group Scout Master to confirm your membership. It is recommended that members create an account in advance of making an order.

Changes to Orders

In most circumstances, it is not possible to make changes to an order once it has been placed. If you need to add products to your order, then please place a new order and advise us by e-mail.

If you need to change your delivery address, remove items or cancel it completely, then please contact the shop by e-mail as soon as possible.

There are some products that may require individual order from our suppliers, and we reserve the right to invoice you for those items if you cancel the order after you have confirmed your acceptance of our price offer. We will however make reasonable efforts to minimise any cost to you.
