For our young people, we ask families to contribute a small amount for subscriptions (subs) each term (this pays for things like insurance and equipment), and to contribute to the cost of camps and activities. We are a registered charity (Reg. Charity No: 303793), and all the subscriptions we receive go directly to activities - all our leaders are 100% unpaid volunteers.
Bursaries are available - we believe that no young person should be prevented from joining because of cost.
The current subscription for a Beaver, Cub or Scout is £40 per school term.
Subs are due just after each half-term (November, February and June) and are payable using our online system 'Online Scout Manager'. Parents have an option to set up a direct debit or make a one-off payment for the current term.
The Gift Aid Scheme enables us to reclaim basic rate tax on membership subscriptions, without posing any further obligations on the payer. Please sign up if possible, as this continues to provide a useful boost to our finances.

Online Scout Manager
The Scout Troop have been using an online system (My.Scout) for admin, camps and events for some time.
