Please note that all leaders, young leaders, and helpers in all capacities throughout the Group are unpaid volunteers that, in spite of their own family and work commitments, contribute their time, efforts, skills, and often other resources, for the benefit of our young people within the group.
Where do your Subs go?
All members of all sections of the Group pay subs which contribute towards the cost of Capitation (contribution to The Scout Association paid by each Beaver/Cub/Scout), Rent (fees paid to St Thomas’ Church for the Group’s use of the church facilities), Insurance (insurance fee covering loss and theft of equipment owned by the Group), Programme (cost associated with the delivery of the programme in each section), and costs relating to the essential repairs and renewals of existing equipment. The Group endeavours to keep these fees to a minimum, but must ensure that all outgoing expenses are met.
We haven’t had an increase since 2016 but unfortunately we have to increase from Novemer 2020. The current cost now stands at £180 annually. This can be paid termly as 3 payments of £60 by BACS/cash/cheque, or as 12 payments of £15 paid by BACS at the beginning of each calendar month (monthly payments cannot be made by cash/cheque (unless by prior arrangement) due to the admin resources required to keep track of payments). Please pay electronically wherever possible (3rd Brampton Scout Group – Sort Code 16-16-18 – Account No. 13676668) and ensure that you add your child’s initial and surname to the payment description so that we can reconcile your payment to your child.
