Welcome to our new Refunds Policy page. We’ve never had to bother with this before as we’ve always had the funds available to give full refunds. Although our holiday weekend deposits have always been labelled “non-refundable deposit”, even if another Brownie had not taken her place, the deposit was more often than not refunded, sometimes at a loss to the unit. However, due to the COVID-19 crisis, our Unit funds are very low as last term’s meetings were cancelled and so we were unable to collect any meeting subs – a loss of £500 to the Unit. Therefore, it is now deemed necessary to formalize our refunds policy:
DEPOSITS FOR PAYING EVENTS.
All deposits are non-refundable UNLESS another Brownie takes the place and pays her deposit. This is simply because your deposit would have already been spent on resources, crafts, activities etc.
DEPOSITS FOR FREE EVENTS
Deposits taken for free day trips will be returned on the day of the event IF the Brownie turns up. No shows at such free events will result in NON PAYMENT of deposit. Again, simply because the deposit was used to pay for an entry ticket or fee which in turn will be non-refundable from the venue provider.
CONSENT FORMS & WEBSITE EVENTS
The yearly consent form and list of events on this website, will also include a cut off date for refunds. Please make sure you read through carefully before paying and committing to an event.
