Promise & Law

When you get invested into Scouts, you promise to do certain things – including to abide by our law.

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


On My Honour, I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen,
To help other people
And to keep the Scout Law.
