Good News – Subs Stay at £2

After a thorough review of our operating costs and our budget for the 2015-16 financial year the Group Executive Committee agreed at their meeting on Monday 13th April that subs will remain at £2.00 for the next twelve months.

Despite ever rising costs this will be the fourth year without an increase in the subs we charge.

The cost of  operating the headquarters , providing Colony, Pack, Troop & Unit night activities, badges, insurance, leader training and much more is all paid from subs and this will cost in the region of £20,000  in the coming year.

This is all financed by weekly Subs

Our Electricity bill is over £4000 a year

Insurance and National Membership subscriptions are over £8000 a year

We spend over £1000 a year on badges for our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers

We receive no funding from local or national goverment. Everything we spend we have to raise ourselves
