Important News about the Scout Shop
14/09/2018 By DC-Russell Brooks

Dear Leaders and Parents, 

There is currently a dispute ongoing in relation to the renewal of the lease of the Scout Hut at Tallents Crescent.  The landlords have unilaterally changed the locks and told us that we can no longer have access to the hut.  We will continue to try to resolve matters and reinstate our access rights, but in the meantime we have therefore had to temporarily suspend the Scout Shop.

Parents, this means that the Scout shop for the time being will not be opening at Tallents Crescent.  Whilst our shop is closed, we have arranged with St Albans District Scouts that our parents and leaders can use their shop.  A  map and opening times can be found at  http://www.stalbansscouts.org/st-albans-scout-shop/ and in the attached.

Parents can buy all core uniform from the shop.  Scarves will not be available from St Albans Scout shop however, as they were stored at our hut and are locked in for now.  As soon as they are accessible again, we will let you know.

Leaders can buy uniform and badges from the shop.  The shop manager has asked that leaders email her details of the badges they want so she can get them ready for collection (sales@stalbansscoutshop.org.uk).  Leaders will need to pay St Albans shop for badges, and seek reimbursement from their Groups direct.

All the best

Russell Brooks
District Commissioner

HMRC have published new model wording for Gift Aid Declarations to be used from 5th April 2016.  The new declaration has been shortened and simplified removing references to Council Tax and VAT.  Scout groups are able to claim Gift Aid on membership subscriptions and donations for sponsored events and should use the new Gift Aid declaration form for any donations from 5th April 2016 onwards.  Declarations that are already in place do not need to be updated.
