Membership fees and activity costs
Membership fees are £13.50 per month. We ask that you pay these by standing order or electronic payment on the 1st of each month. Details for electronic payments are available from us.
Other events and activities are charged separately. They are priced on a "best value for money" basis and for main camps and expeditions, there are opportunities for young people to raise funds to help reduce the cost of the events. Trips and days outs are at the best prices we can get - usually helped along by group discounts!.
We operate an Activity Bank payment scheme, which allows you to pay for events in instalments. It also shows you a record of the events and payments made. We provide weekly statements to your e-mail address, along with news and information about Group activities.
We want our members to get as much out of Scouting as possible and we're always happy to discuss any difficulties around payment.
We are a uniformed organisation, worn by all our members. At its simplest it is a sweat shirt/shirt and kneckie. Sometimes we'll require smart trousers to be worn.
Please order your uniform from us using the form in your New Member's Pack - or ask us. There are other options available - t-shirts, polo shirts and hoodies. You can order these from us.
There are some activities and events when uniform is not needed and we let you know this in advance.

Other things your youngster might need
For activities such as hikes and camps, you'll need to have access to some other personal kit, such as:
Whilst you may want to have your own items, we maintain a small stock of these items and you may be able to borrow from us (for a nominal hire fee) when taking aprt in activities that might need them.
Finally, if there's anything we haven't covered here, please ask your youngster's Section Leader. If they don't have an answer, they'll know someone who does!
