I just find it astonishing that somewhere someone is being levied only
£18! (Most likely the HQ levy, £18.60, if I'm right) The district has
no costs to support? The county has no costs to support? Or are these
costs more than supported in some other way? Must be a couple of good
fundraisers or a tap into sufficient grants/funds.
Our County charge a levy of about £8.50. This should give them an income of
£80,750. I don't know exactly it is split down but I do know that the WB
Training Modules are free at source and some other Training is subsidised. I
know that the DCs and County Team weekend in Scarborough costs about £4,000.
Our District does not currently charge a Levy - possibly because people
questioned the bank balance. The camp site is also supposed to put some
funds into general funds but I don't think that has happened recently and
the DC is not happy about it. There are 2 other fund raising efforts in the
I don't know what other Districts spend their money on but here there is not
a lot of expenditure supporting the Scouting Programme in the District

... Good, every Group should work as a team supporting each other, it is just that in the true Scouting spirit that should extend to the other Groups in the District and wider. ... it seems strange that they think you should support them when their role is to support the Groups. ... County Camp you booked kids on they paid their money and turned up. ... you could either with your scouts or on the leadership team. ...

... Yes you need to heighten the awareness of Scouting nationally, but without spending silly amounts of money, this isn't easy! ... reading a document recently about the proposed change in support structures for Scouting in Scotland, and the whole document re-emphasises the fact that the Group is key, and the GSL is the person that makes or breaks Scouting locally. ... If I remember the stats correctly, only 60% of Scottish groups have a GSL, and 20% of those also have another role (District or Area based). ... It also recognised, unfortunately, that rearranging the support structures does not necessarily free up people who want to be GSLs. ...
