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.

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