Promise and Law

At your investiture as a Scout you will make the Scout Promise in front of the rest of the Troop. The Promise is a very difficult one to keep, but it is a most serious one and nobody is a Scout unless they do their best to live up to this Promise.
Robert Baden-Powell - Scouting for Boys

The Promise and Law are below for your reference: make sure you know them!

Promises are reaffirmed annually on St. George's Day, the saint's day of our Patron Saint.

Alternative wording for the promise is also possible for those who wish to use it; please speak to the leaders to discuss this if required.
