Membership Renewals

It’s time to renew…….

Dear Members,

Here we are again at the beginning of a new “Membership Year” and we would be very grateful as existing members if you would continue to give us the valuable support of our work.

Your subscriptions and generous donations have enabled us to buy necessary equipment for work parties – tools, plants etc. Our volunteers have put in many enjoyable hours helping with work parties which enable us to improve and keep the Walkway attractive for everyone’s enjoyment.

We also continue to promote larger long-term projects such as replacing the Salvesen Steps, extending public access further up the river and ensuring that a good solution is found for improving fish passage on the weirs. Therefore the more members we have, the louder our voice becomes and the more likely it is that Councillors, Council Officials and other organisations such as funders will listen positively to what we have to say.

We hope you are pleased with the progress we have made to date, and are happy to support our plans for the future improvement of our Walkway.

Please renew your membership today using the form below. Our status as a Scottish Registered Charity requires us to know the names of all our members, so if there is more than one member in a household, please let us know.

Membership subscription is held at only £2 per household but we are very grateful to those who augment this with a donation of a bit more, which always helps towards the work we do along the walkway.

As many of you are aware, FRAW is now eligible for Gift Aid so your subscription and donation could be worth even more. If the person in your household who pays the subscription/donation currently pays UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to the amount of the subscription/donation in the appropriate tax year, FRAW can reclaim the tax paid, currently 25p for each £1 given. Please complete the Gift Aid section when returning the form.

If, at any time, you wish to cancel the Gift Aid declaration, or you change your name or home address, or you no longer pay sufficient tax, please notify us as soon as possible.

Finally, membership is open to anyone who is interested in helping the group achieve its aims. If you know anyone who is not a member but would like to join, please encourage them to join us.

We look forward to your continued support.

Many Thanks.

Euan Drysdale
Hon. Treasurer/Membership Secretary
