The fee values were reviewed at The Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 6th September 2016,
and remain as follows:
Playing members over 35
years service - free
Playing members between 30-34 years service - £16.25
Playing members under 30 years service - £32.50
Associate Members over 35
years service - free
Associate Members between 30-34 years service - £8.15
Associate members under 30 years service - £16.25
There will still be the pro rata fees for new members whose first season starts after the Christmas break and these will be £16.25 for players and £8.15 for associates.
N.B. Pro rata will not be applicable to current members who through late payment do not pay their subscriptions until after Christmas.
The above will not preclude members who are entitled to discounted membership from paying the full rate if they wish to do so. This difference will be classed as a donation to the orchestra.
Also given rising fuel costs and the increasing distance we are travelling for gigs the travel allowance was raised from 26.4p up to 28p a mile. .* This along with the annual subscriptions will be reviewed at the AGM scheduled for Tuesday 4th September 2018
