Term Subs Now Due

imageMembership Subscriptions for the current term are now due. The first child pays £25.00 and any other members from the same family will pay a reduced Subscription of £20.00.

Subs help to pay for the running of the Scout Group and includes; the yearly Capitation Fee which we have to pay to the Scout Association, this is currently over £28.00 for each and every member of the Group.

Please ensure Subs are paid by the 31. January 2018.

Unfortunately we do struggle to get Subs off a few members. Leaders would rather put their time into running activities than chasing late payers. We will now assume that if subs are not paid by the date shown below, membership is no longer required and will therefore be terminated. Scouting however is for all, irrespective of financial means, if you are struggling to pay your child’s Subs, please speak to a Leader in confidence.
