    Subs How Much do you charge ?

    My Group's Executive Committee is reviewing our Membership Subscription.
    We currently charge £2 per meeting week, due at the start of each half term. This equates to £78 per year.
    We aim to introduce Standing Orders, and due to increasing costs need to reconsider how much we need to charge. Not wishing to overcharge, I was wondering what other Group's charge.
    So across a year what is your Group Membership Subscription (including payment of Annual Membership Subscription)?

    we charge what we need to run... you must do the same

    our costs are different - as will our membership numbers be... our subs will differ

    We charge £100 per year. We're not bothered how it is paid - we generally ask for it monthly at £10 with August and December 'free', but if someone struggles that way they can pay weekly - but they pay whether they come or not.

    We are open most weeks - but the programme if often adapted during the holidays - for instance the Beaver leader is a teacher so often meets during the day during the holidays and makes a day of it.

    If meeting night falls on Christmas Eve, Day, Boxing Day, New Years Eve or Day then we are closed.

    We charge £25 per term so £75 per year including AMS. We are lucky that we don't have to cover the full costs of our meeting place if we owned our own hut we would charge significantly more I expect.

    Our subs is £25 per term and we do own our meeting place, which we can use to raise money so don't have to charge any more on subs.

    He who receives a good turn should never forget it; he who does one should never remember it.

    £120 per year, payable monthly or quarterly. Includes AMS and most activities (expensive things we will ask for a contribution towards). Does not include camps.

    If you're intested that roughly breaks down as follows:

    £10 / mo =
    AMS contribution - £2.50
    Building rent - £0.50
    Equipment kitty - £1
    Activities - £6
    Terrible, wonderful, crazy, perfect.

    £99 per year currently collected at £16.50 per half term.

    We are considering making payment by standing order available, at £8.25 per month. This would make things a lot easier, but you need a group treasurer who is prepared to do the bank statement checking and subs recording that section leaders/helpers have traditionally done. Fortunately we have such a treasurer.

    We have Standing Orders at £4/month, 50% of which is to cover AMS, with a new District Levy we will have to review this but appear to be very cheap compared to everyone else!

    £60 a year, payable either as a lump sum of £60 or £20 a term.

    We don't do monthly or weekly collections, £20 is cheap enough to find once a term and it takes a term to chase the latepayers anyway!!

    Incidentally we have two scouts who haven't paid for last term yet. The SL said he'll have a word before we start thinking of sanctions.

    We currently charge £3 per week, but after Easter will probably have to raise it to £4 in order to cover extortionate rent increase by the Housing Trust.

    £ 10 per term
    £1.50 per night attended we dont meet on holidays so that works out at about £85per year if they turn up every week.

    Camps and outdoor activities are charges as they happen.
