Equipment and Funding

The Group is fortunate to own its scout hut and a reasonably sized adjacent grassed area.

Over the years the Group has accumulated a full complement of scouting equipment available to all sections. This includes tents, gas cooking and lighting, tables and benches, a dining shelter, archery and air rifle equipment, pioneering materials and much more.

When necessary, the scouts, cubs etc. and equipment can be moved around in our minibus and trailer.

The Group is financially stable.

Subscriptions are payable each term and are fairly modest. There is a discount if the full year’s subs are paid in advance.  These funds, together with income from our annual fireworks party are enough to maintain the scout hut, renew all equipment on a timely basis and still have enough to support section meetings during term time.

Special events, such as camps, are not included and a separate charge is made to cover costs.

One final point of interest – subscriptions of children who have a parent who is a uniformed leader are reduced by 50%
