Meeting Admission Fees to increase to £1.50 per child from 1st January 2017
A couple of days ago, we received news that the charge to JAG to privately hire Cheeky Monkeys for our meetings, is to increase from January 2017.
Any price increase is never welcome news but when you consider that the cost to JAG has been held at the same level for 5 years it was not entirely unexpected.
Over the past 5 years, Cheeky Monkeys have made many improvements to the centre. They have added new areas and offer extra activities for children. Staffing costs will have increased along with food & drink, insurances and many other costs associated with running a business.
Having been to other play centres in the wider area, we prefer Cheeky Monkeys. They are cleaner, friendlier, more spacious and are good enough to hire out to groups like JAG at a rate which is still lower than a regular private hire would be.
As a completely parent funded community organisation, this means that JAG now needs to find additonal income to cover the increase in hire charge which is why we will be increasing the admission fee from January to £1.50 per child.
We are sorry to have to bring you this news but we just do not have the resource to cover the additional cost ourselves.
We hope you consider that JAG is still a valuable asset to the Autism community and of course, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support.
