5. What’s a Necker? etc…

Any new environment comes with new terminology, Here are a few to get you started:

Necker: The rolled scarf worn round our necks, usually in the colours that represent the group you are a member of.

Woggle: The circular object, originally made from leather but now could be anything, used to fasten a necker.

Akela: Cub Scout Leader. Cub leader roles were originally (and in many cases still are) named after characters from the Jungle Book.

GSL: Group Scout Leader

Subs: The Subscription fee you pay to be a member of scouts at 1st Garforth. Subs are paid to the group and we use this money to maintain our building & equipment, as well as paying the main Scout Association a fee on your behalf to cover things like membership & insurance.
