Notices for SWSO Members

Member Subscriptions and Gift Aid: Please submit your subscription to our treasurer - £50/yr or £15/concert (first rehearsal free for newcomers), or by electronic payment to "Saffron Walden Orchestral Society – SWSO", at Barclays Bank Plc, sort code. 20-00-87, Acct. 90850217.

If you are a taxpayer, you can make your subscription worth 25% more to the orchestra at no cost to yourself, by making it under the Gift Aid scheme. You can also help the orchestra minimise its administration costs by paying your subscription annually by standing order. Download the Gift Aid (.doc), and return it completed to our treasurer.

Please don't regard subscriptions as optional; the orchestra does have significant costs to cover.
