Subscriptions should be paid at the start of each term. These subscriptions enable the sections to buy badges, materials, equipment, resources etc. in order to provide an interesting and enjoyable programme of activities.
Payment of the Annual Membership Fee is spread over the three terms and is included within your subscriptions. This fee is passed to the Scout Association Headquarters to cover the various services it provides plus the personal accident and medical insurance for each member. A proportion of the fee also goes to our County and District for their support services.
Payment amount & method
As from 1st April 2012 the combined Subs/Membership Fee amount that should be paid for each member is £28.00 per term. Payment is due at the start of each term and there are several ways in which payment can be made;
- Internet banking (Account Number: 41509048 Sort Code: 60-01-04 Reference: “Your Child’s Name”)
- Cheque made payable to “28th Croydon Scout Group”
Payment by cheque or cash should be enclosed within an envelope clearly marked up with “Subs” and your “Childs Name” and handed to your Section’s Parent Representative.
To help our administration please do not include payment for any other activity with your subs payment.
Gift Aid is an easy way for the Group to raise funds which enables us to maintain your Subscriptions at their present low level. All that is required is the completion of a simple form by a tax paying parent or guardian when you join the Group. We will then be able to reclaim 25p for every £1.00 of your Subscriptions.
