2nd Penrith: Finances


All money that is received on behalf of the Group is given to the Group Treasurer, and goes through the group bank account.  It should never be put through a personal bank account.

Specific expenses

Any purchases of equipment above and beyond the normal termly budget normally require prior agreement with the Group Executive committee.

Other expenses

Questions about whether a specific expense may or may not be appropriate should be directed to the Group Scout Leader.

The Group Scout Leader may decide that the Group should provide assistance with petrol and other reasonable costs relating to regular attendance which would otherwise make it difficult for an adult to continue membership:  In the event of a disagreement, the Leader has the right of appeal to the Executive Committee.
