2017 Membership Fees

Dear Parent / Carer,

Scout Association Membership Fees 2017

The Scout Association annual membership fees are now due. The fee for all Group members is £35 each. Porthill Scout Group do not keep this money, it has to be paid directly to the Scout Association to run the organisation.

This cost now runs into thousands of pounds for our Group and the swift collection of this membership fee is vital to the future of the Group. The executive committee therefore has stated that all fees must be paid by 24/03/17. If your son’s / daughter’s fees are not paid by that date then, unfortunately, they may no longer be able to attend.

Last year most parents chose to make payments via our website by credit or debit card. To pay using this method please click here.

The payments are processed by PayPal, in the same way you can pay online for items from retailers such as Domino’s Pizza or Interflora. You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay (you can use your credit or debit card) and all the payments are taken via PayPal’s website, so you can be sure that your details are secure and we do not keep any of your card details. Once the payment has been made, you will receive a receipt via email.

If you wish to pay by cash or cheque, please send this to your son’s / daughter’s next Scout / Cub / Beaver meeting. Receipts will be provided for any money paid. Please make cheques payable to “1st St Andrews Porthill Scout Group”.

If your child is a new member please can you also ask to complete a Gift Aid declaration form (available from section leaders).

If you have any queries regarding this payment please speak to your section leader.

Thank you.

Yours in Scouting

Kevin Stanyer
Group Treasurer
