Beavers, Cubs and Scouts are incredibly good value for money, and that’s thanks to all our volunteer leaders who give their time for free. All our work to raise funds, and the fact that we hire our hall to other organizations, also mean that Marlborough Scout Group is very low cost even compared to most other groups in the country. We’re also proud that we’ve been able to keep prices fixed for several years.
Unfortunately, the time has now come for a small increase to our subscriptions. From the start of the Autumn 2021 session the price will increase by £2 to £42. This pays for the entire period from September until December. Later payments of £42 per child will also be needed for the January-March 2022 term and for April-June 2022 term.
We can, however, adjust payments in cases of genuine, severe financial hardship as we do not want any of our youngsters to miss out on scouting. If you are experiencing any such problems, please talk to your child’s section leader.
