From The Chairman:

I am writing to remind you all of the start of the new series of WIAS meetings beginning on
Thursday September 14h. 2017, and to enclose the programme for 2017-‐2018. I do hope you

Despite inflationary pressures throughout the economy, I am pleased to be able to report that our
membership subscription rates for the year 2017-‐2018 will remain at £16 (individual) and £20
(joint). Membership gives free entry to all WIAS monthly meetings. Members attending all meetings
would do so therefore at a cost of £1.60 – less than a price of a cappuccino!
The majority of our members have now completed Gift Aid declaration forms. If you have not done so,
and are a UK taxpayer, please complete a Gift Aid declaration form, which will be available on
entry to the September meeting.
Please also note that we shall continue to invite visitors to our meetings to contribute £2.50 on
entry, although we must emphasise that this is a voluntary ‘free will’ gift and is not an entry fee
Subscriptions can be handed in at the monthly meeting to the Membership Secretary, or
sent by post to: Mrs. S. Hammon (WIAS Membership Secretary), 17 Knightcote Drive Leamington Spa Warwickshire CV32 5FA.
