The subs cover a multitude of costs:

  • Weekly activities at meetings (some more expensive activities may need an additional contribution);
  • Purchase badges and awards;
  • Insurance for young people, helpers and leaders at the Scout Hut and during adventurous activities;
  • Maintain the Scout Hall, Grounds, Stores, Equipment etc.;
  • Pay annual membership fees to The Scout Association.

The current monthly subscription of £7.50 amounts to a total of £90 per annum, which is less than £2.50 per meeting!
Fantastic value for money, all made possible by leaders and helpers volunteering their time and enthusiasm to bring the exciting world of Scouting to your child.

If you can volunteer any help (even just a few hours of your time – see Volunteering) or can donate a little more (e.g. £8 or £10 instead of £7.50) it can make a big difference for the group.

There are a number of advantages to the Group if you are able to use the online method. We therefore request you consider it first.
However, if this is not suitable for you, payment can be made by cash or cheque.

Payments are aligned with the online donations and will be due monthly.

This is currently set to £7.50 minimum a month, and £15 in July and nothing in August.

You may pay more than one month at a time in minimum multiples of £7.50, for example £15 at the beginning of the ½ term to cover two months.

Please note: If you donate, say £9, then we will assume that is a one month payment, if you donate £16 and tell us this is for two months we will assign £8 per month.
