Subs & Payments

    Subs are currently £3.00 per week which is payable half-termly in advance on the first Wednesday back after each break. New brownies pay a one-off joining fee of £5 at their first meeting.

    We notify parents of the amount due in the termly newsletter and by letters and text reminders. Parents are asked to pay promptly. Subs are payable for every week there is a meeting even if the brownie is unable to attend.

    Where possible, brownie trips and outings will be subsidised by our funds. Whenever a contribution is due from parents, we will always provide as much notice as possible. One day trip forms must be completed for all brownies to ensure that they are covered by Girlguiding UK insurance whilst out and about.

    All money taken covers the caretaker’s fees, hire of the school premises, badges, stationery, crafts products and cooking ingredients.

    Each January we have to pay an annual charge for all members to Girlguiding UK which pays for insurance and administration fees. We try to subsidise this from unit funds if possible but we always ask parents to contribute towards it.

    If, for any reason, you are unable to pay please inform one of the leaders as soon as possible in complete confidence so that we can help. We will never refuse a child due to hardship.

    REMEMBER all brownie leaders and helpers are unpaid volunteers!
