Explorer Subs

The annual membership fee (capitation) and subs are now due.

The subscription system within Brigantia is as follows:

An annual membership fee payment of £45 (due during week ending 10th February 2017)

  • This fee is set by the national Scout Association and the District, and it is not retained by the Unit
  • It is used to ensure that your son/daughter is officially registered as an Explorer Scout and consequently is covered by the Scout insurance system
  • Non payment of this would unfortunately result in your son/daughter being asked to leave as they would not be registered with the Association, and therefore, not covered by the insurance system.
  • This is reduced by 50% if joining after July of each year.

A termly subscription fee of £22 (due in January, April and September)

  • This is used by the Unit to cover the costs of running the programme.
  • This is used to cover rent or other charges we incur as a result of the buildings and equipment we use.
  • Only the oldest child pays the full termly subscription. Any younger brothers or sisters in Brigantia pay a reduced rate of £11 per term.
  • Ideally, we would prefer this to be paid annually as a one off payment of £66 as it makes the administration of the Unit finances a simpler and less onerous task, and enables us to plan future events.

 

We have Paypal options to pay for subs and the table below outlines all the different permutations; there is a small surcharge to cover the Paypal fees.  You are also welcome to pay by cheque.  Cheques should be made payable to ‘Ealing & Hanwell District Explorer Scouts’ and handed in to one of the leaders or posted to Ben at 121 Chaucer Way, Hitchin, SG4 0PF.

We charge discounted subs for the younger sibling if you have two children in the unit, so please use the second table for the young sibling.
