It is intended to increase fees for home group meetings across the board. Home meeting fees have not been increased for many years. The details are below.

    • From the recommencement of meetings the attendance fee will be £1, of which £0.35 is to be given to the host. Receipts are not required.
    • No expense claim for refreshments over and above £0.35 per head may be made at any time of year.

All Groups

    • Electronic submission of all forms and payments is preferred as is electronic communication regarding Group organisation. If this is not possible an expenses claim for Group administration e.g. postage (preferably receipted) may be submitted to a maximum value of £0.50 per Home meeting.
    • No claim for Group expenditure in excess of the above will be paid unless prior approval has been gained from the Committee and the expenditure is receipted.
    • Income and Expense forms and income must be passed to the Treasurer at 6 monthly intervals.

    • No grants will be available for any purpose.
    • Methods of handling cash will be at the coordinator or hosts discretion.
