Any Scouts want to TRY CANOE POLO?

Situations vacant….the Group needs a Groundsman, a Quartermaster, a “Bike Sale Champion”, and most of all, an assistant Beaver leader and at least two Assistant Scout leaders. 100% pay rise available for all volunteers!!
In 2017 we will combine termly subs and annual capitation to make a combined termly fee of £47/term (Scouts and Cubs) and £42/term (Beavers). The annual fee of £35-£40/head of the past will no longer be charged but is combined with subscriptions. Subscriptions should be paid by MyDonate – not by cheque or bank transfer.
Payments for one-off activities (camps, nights away, special adventure activities etc) can be made on-line directly. We need to reduce massively the number of cheques handled by the leaders and the treasurer.
Further information will be available in due course.
