Paying your membership fee
The annual membership fee is £12.00.
When you join the Society, the subscription for the first year is the amount needed to take you to the end of that year, so if you join in January the fee is £12, February £11, and so on.
You can renew your membership at the AGM in November, or you can send a cheque made out to WGAS to our Treasurer:
Audrey Mackie, 16 Beech Way, Littledean, GL14 3PD
or email [email protected] to confirm your renewal and make a bank transfer to sort code 30 95 29, account number 02969887 with your surname as the reference.

Events in 2019
Exhibition/sale of work at Lydney
One of our Members, Tony Norris, has kindly arranged for us to have a stand at ‘Party in the Park’ in Bathurst Park, Lydney on Saturday 6th July. This is part of the annual Lydney Festival and was a very popular event last year with thousands of visitors. It will be open from 2 pm to 9 pm.
Tony has booked The Bandstand and also has a gazebo with the idea of hanging artworks on railings/ bandstand/ gazebo for an exhibition of Members work and also to promote WGAS. Artworks will under cover, so rainy weather won’t be a problem.
Please contact Tony if you are interested in taking part or helping: Tony Norris: anor[email protected]
Full details of these and other events will be sent to all members.
