3rd Hayling Scouts

The 3rd Hayling Scout Group is a registered charity. Charity number 308136

Subscription Review January 2012

Each year we review the cost of running the 3rd Hayling Scout Group and determine the level of subs required to support this. As a result of the last review, we have identified the need to increase subs to £90 per year from April 2012.

The subscriptions paid support five basic cost areas:-

  1. Scouting National Membership Fee
  2. Section Running Costs
  3. Books and Badges
  4. Leader Training for Specialist Skills
  5. A contribution towards the HQ running Costs

All other expenditure within the group, including the remaining HQ running costs, camping equipment and other projects is covered by our fundraising.

Why the Increase




The chart above shows how the subs are distributed across the five elements. Between 2005 and 2011, you can see the significant increases in HQ membership fee and "books and badges" with the effect of reducing the contribution towards the HQ running costs.

In 2008, the HQ running costs were just over £5000 and by 2011 had risen to £7000. The proportion of these costs covered by subscription had reduced from 70% to just 50% placing a significant additional requirement on fundraising.

An increase to £90 per year on subscriptions. togther with the growth in membership will restore the contribition of subs to 70% of the HQ running costs.
