Dear Parents,

Please can I kindly bring your attention to the upcoming year’s subs & capitation fees. The following fees apply to all Scouts, Cubs & Beavers. Please note that Osprey Explorers Subs are organised separately.

There is a choice of 2 instalment methods:-

3x Per-Term fee £30 (to be paid by May 15, Oct 15, Feb 15)

1x Yearly fee £85 (discount if you pay all at once at the start of the financial year, by May 15)

These charges cover subs & capitation/membership fees. This covers each child’s insurance, the running costs of the hut, badges and materials used for their activities.

If your child has just started with us you will not be asked to pay until they have attended for 3-4 weeks to give your child time to decide whether they wish to join. Payment will then become due for the term they have joined us in.

Whether you choose to pay per-term or yearly, you can pay with either of the following methods. Please use Bank Transfer if you are at all able. (PayPal payment option also possible to [email protected]):

Bank transfer:-

The group’s bank account details are as follows, please mark the payment with your child’s name (surname first). If you have 2 children in the group, please put both first names after their surname (18 character limit imposed by bank – first initials are fine).

Bank details are 

Sort Code: 77-66-25

Account Number: 00002566

Account Name: 1st Kirton Scouts

Cash / Cheques:-

Please place the money in an envelope (cheques payable to 1st Kirton Scouts) clearly marked with your child’s name & the amount enclosed and give it to your child’s Leader.

If your child moves up to cubs, scouts, explorers during the year; any fees already paid will be transferred with them.

If your child is new to the group. Please could you complete a Gift Aid form. You can download it here: Gift Aid Form or you can ask at [email protected], or your Leader for a gift aid form as this enables us to claim the tax back on the money you pay, helps to keep the fees you pay down and it costs you nothing. We do not need a Gift Aid form every year but we do need a new one if you have changed address.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Winterbone – 1st Kirton Group Scout Leader
