Termly Subscriptions

Please note the increase in termly subscription starting this term, details of which have been individually sent to you

Payment is due at or before the first meeting of each term as this ensures that your child is insured and also helps with our banking. If there is any problem with payment, please contact us so that we can discuss other arrangements.

Our preferred method of payment is by online banking (details on Subs Request letter). Any other payment by cheque or cash should be deposited in the box on the wall inside the main hall doors attached to an information slip with the name of the child and his/her section. Other payments may also be made by these methods if full information is attached. For security reasons the box will be emptied at the end of each session.

For payments from January 2014, we will be registered to claim back Gift Aid on subscription payments. Approximately 60% have completed the form and we thank you. Forms will be going out again with the subs request letters and we ask that you look out for these and those who haven't submitted one please do so and return them as soon as possible. It cost you no extra payment, the government pays us on your behalf on presentation of the form.

Events

We are a charity which organises events throughout the year to raise money for our group to spend on repairs, equipment and such like. To see what events and activities are happening, where and when take a look at the events calendar.

A list of events for the year 2017 has been published soon

Our Facebook site The group now has a Facebook page that has been set up as a closed group so only members of the group will be able to access it. We will put reminders of events and useful information on it but the bulk of information will stay on the web site (www.firstwokingham.org.uk) .
