2019 Membership Fees

Dear Parent / Carer

Scout Association Membership Fees 2019

The Scout Association’s annual membership fees are now due. The fee for this year is £40 per member. Porthill Scout Group do not keep this money, it has to be paid directly to the Scout Association to run the organisation.

This cost 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 has therefore stated that all fees MUST be paid by 30th April 2019.If your child’s fees are not paid by that date, then, unfortunately, your child will be turned away and will not be able to attend meetings or events until payment is made.

If you have difficulty making the payment on time, please speak to one of the Leaders who will be able to discuss some options with you.

Most parents are now choosing 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 cash or cheque payments. 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.

Yours in Scouting
Nick Wood
Group Scout Leader
