When: Sunday 2nd October 2016 @ 20:00
Where: John Slye Scout Hall, Churchyard Lane, Douglas

Now that our sections are up and running, now that our new online payments system is up and running we are holding our registration night for the new Scouting Year on this Sunday night.

This is a night for all our new members who have joined in the last three weeks and for all our existing members to settle their registration fees for the year and to ensure your childs activity consent form is submitted so they can take part in activities going forward

  • Registration Fees for 2016/2017 are the same 2015/2016.
    We have managed to hold our registration at the same level for almost 5 years
  • For one youth member: €130
  • For two youth members of the same family: €240
  • For three or more youth members of the same family: €330

For members to take part in any activities this Scouting year they must have paid their registration fee as this covers their Scouting Ireland Insurance. Failure to pay this will result in your child not being able to take part in Scouting.

This registration fee covers our National Fees and Insurance costs which are paid directly to Scouting Ireland – Day to Day running costs incl. lighting and heating of our Scout Hall – Hall insurance and general maintenance

All sections will be represented on the night

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on Sunday night

Yours In Scouting,

Conor Crowley
Group Leader

Please do stick it on your fridge for reference, if it’s been misplaced please print off a copy using the link below.

Spike Island Trip: As we have to pay for the boat and food before we go, we will need payment for the Spike Island trip by Monday evening at the latest.

Full uniform must be worn next Monday and on the 1st Monday of every month.

Scout Shop have uniform deals on offer. If your new cub doesn’t have their cub uniform by Monday just have them wear their full beaver uniform.

Morning all,

Here in Douglas & St. FinBarre’s Scout group, we’re implementing an online payment system for the group, through a company called Easy Payments Plus.

We’re excited by it, we feel it will give both us and you an easier way to pay & track payments.

In the next short while, you should receive an email from the system, allowing you to activate your account.  You should do this – it’s NOT spam!

 

We KNOW that there may be teething problems while we role this out – please bear with us.  We feel it’ll be really worth it on everybody’s part.

Come back with any queries,

Enda.
