Applications to Join the Group
Parents who wish their son or daughter to join the Group should contact the membership secretary, Eddy Butler, 19 Mercia Drive, S17 3QF, Tel: 0114 2361263, email: email@example.com to establish whether there is a vacancy or to place a name on our waiting list. Please note that existing members of other scout groups who move into our catchment area take priority over others on our waiting list (Scout Association rules).
This is currently set at £120 per academic year. Those starting in September pay the full amount, those joining after Christmas pay £80 in their first year and those joining after Easter £40 in their first year. The subscription for the third and subsequent children from the same family who are all members of the Group is only £39.50 per annum.
It would be appreciated if parents who are tax payers would also complete a Gift Aid declaration so that the Group can reclaim the tax.
The annual subscription includes a capitation fee of £39.50 per head that is paid directly to the Scout Association for national membership, training and insurance purposes. Members whose subsciption is outstanding at the end of March will not be insured and will be asked to leave the Group.
There is no refund for members who leave the Group during the year.
