Ball Policy

General Behaviour

Behaviour which is not in the nature of Scouting or Guiding, will not be tolerated; any actions which bring the reputation of SSAGO, The Scout Association or Girlguiding UK into disrepute will be dealt with by the National SSAGO Executive.

Cancellation and Final Payment Policy

If you cancel after the 29/03/2020, we’re unable to refund any payments after this date.

Please note the final day for payment is the 29/03/2020. If you have paid by cheque, please let the ball committee know so we can expect it. If you have not paid by this date, we may be unable to reserve your accommodation choice. Hence, we recommend paying as soon as you have booked.


SSAGO operates no official alcohol policy; however, where our members drink we encourage them to do so sensibly, and for clubs to adopt a rational approach to drinking. We actively encourage the membership to monitor and police itself in terms of what is acceptable and unacceptable drinking behaviour.

Alcohol is NOT an excuse for poor behaviour, inappropriate behaviour propagated under the effects of alcohol will not be more favourably viewed, than acts committed when sober. No body under the age of 18 must consume alcohol whilst participating in any activity under the banner of SSAGO, Scouting or Guiding. Anybody who does will be breaking the law and so appropriate action will be taken.

Anybody found to be supplying alcohol to a person under the age of 18 is also breaking the law and will have appropriate action taken against them.

Illegal Substances

The use of illegal substances of any kind will not be tolerated by SSAGO. The police shall be called immediately and a lifetime ban from SSAGO will automatically occur. Additionally, the member/s involved will have their name/s passed to The Scout Association and Girlguiding UK, and their University.


Balls are a large-scale event where the volume of attendees is high, and the event is spread over a large area. There will be video, photography and audio being recorded during the event to help promote Scouting, Guiding and SSAGO as a whole.

By participating in this event you grant SSAGO full rights to use the this media and any reproductions or adaptations for these purposes and in line with The Scouts and SSAGO policy. If you do not wish to be photographed please contact the organisers.
