The 2019-2020 annual subscription is Â£12.50 per month, which is paid by Direct Debit.
This contributes towards the cost of:
- The Scout Association Membership Fee
- Safeguarding & Leader Training
- Rent & shared services provided by EG Parish Council
- Building maintenance, cleaning and utilities
- Badges, resources and equipment
(This is currently under review and is likely to rise in 2020-2021 following an increase in The Scout Association's membership fee).
One off joining costs
When a young person is invested into the Group there is a small charge of Â£6.00 to cover the cost of their necker and uniform badges.
As a uniformed organisation we expect all young people to wear uniform. The exact requirements differ depending on their age, but is basically a sweatshirt or shirt and blue trousers. Scout Troop members also require a belt.
