Dear all Parents / Guardians,
It is with great regret that the 8th Falkirk Company of the Boys Brigade will as of next session have to introduce a enrollment fee.
We have prided ourselves on the fact that between all the uniformed organisations (Boys Brigade, Girls Brigade, Scouts, Girl Guides) that we have been one of the very few companies that have not had an enrolemnt fee. However the time has come where we can no longer sustain to pick up the full cost of the fees which we have to pay.
As of the start of next session each boy in 8th Falkirk will be asked to pay a £10 enrolement fee. This Fee does not need to be paid straight away but there will be a deadline of Friday 23rd October.
The requirement to introduce this fee is due to the fees which we as a company have to pay annually. These cover insurance, company registration in both national and battalion. I will be more than happy to speak directly to parents on this matter and explain the break down of the payments we have to make to the national Boys Brigade if desired.
I thank you very much in advance for your understanding on this matter
