Work Party 3

Posted by Robert Hampton on 11th October 2009 at 9:15 pm

Our third work party took place on Saturday. As a result of the work carried out, the unit is now almost completely sheeted over, which will hopefully protect it from the worst of the winter weather.

As winter approaches, poor weather and short daylight hours may prevent any substantial work taking place on the 502 for a while. However, we will back with a vengeance in the spring, and in the meantime there is plenty of fundraising and behind-the-scenes work to be done.

If you think you can help out with restoration or repair work, or have equipment/supplies you can donate, or if you can just help out financially, please get in touch, or consider joining the Friends of the 502.

Standing Orders

Posted by Robert Hampton on 7th October 2009 at 1:13 pm

We are grateful to all those who have already signed up as members, paying by cheque or using PayPal. However, have you considered setting up a regular Standing Order from your bank account? Standing Orders are a great way to make a regular contribution to the group’s funds and ensure we have a regular income throughout the year, without hurting your own finances.

For example, a contribution of £10 per month works out at less than 40p per day, but over the course of a year will build up to £120, which will be a great help to us when buying tools or equipment. You can choose to donate a larger or smaller amount to suit your own pocket.

Whether you are an existing member, or are about to join us for the first time, please consider a standing order. Details are available on the membership page, or contact the group treasurer to request a standing order mandate.
