Joining and Membership


A young person may come to a meeting to try scouting out free of charge for the first month. They should be dropped off by a parent or guardian who will leave any relevant health information and emergency contact details with the section leader.

If the young person wishes to return the following month, they should bring with them the completed joining form, along with a cash payment to cover the first month’s subscription.

The current Beaver, Cub and Scout subscription is £120 per year for the first child. For your convenience the yearly fee is divided into twelve monthly payments of £10 payable by standing order at the beginning of each month. Our bank details can be found in the joining pack your child was given at the end of their first meeting. Failure to pay subs will result in the young person being removed from the group. If you are experiencing difficulties in paying subs, for whatever reason, please speak to a leader.

If a family has more than one child in the group, the subscription is reduced to £78 per year for the second child ( £6.50 a month). There is no further charge for third, fourth and more siblings.

We can reclaim tax if you are a standard or higher rate tax payer, so please check our Gift Aid section.
