Unit Charges

Our unit charges consist of subs of 2.50 per session. These should be paid on the first day of each term. These cover the cost of the equipment and the hire of the meeting hall. They also cover the annual subscription to Girlguiding, which pays for the day to day running costs of the Association.

Any questions you have regarding the fees please feel free to discuss with Wendy.

For events like camps, holidays or days out, there would be additional charges. Our aim is to offer the girls different opportunities. We as leaders are also parents so we are fully aware of all the additional costs that occur when your daughter takes up different clubs and groups. Our aim is to organise various fund raising activities throughout the year, so that we can use the funds raised to subsidise these activities.
