Members – set up a standing order before April 1st and save money!

The Society’s running costs are relatively low but they have been steadily increasing in recent years.

In response,  the committee has reluctantly decided to raise the cost of single annual membership for the forthcoming year to £8, beginning 1st April 2019.

As a `thank you’ for helping make our job easier, however, existing members who set up a regular standing order payment before this date will qualify for the old rate of £6 per year.  This includes your whole family or household.

A standing order payment ensures that your membership will be renewed automatically every year.  It gives you one less thing to think about and now it could also save you money.  There’s an incentive!

Just click on the link below,  print off  a form, complete it and pass it on to your bank/building society (please also detach and return the bottom section to our membership secretary – address included).

To celebrate our 40th Anniversary (and Fathers’ Day),  members and guests are warmly invited to join us on Sunday June 17th at 2.30pm for tea, coffee and cakes at the University of Leicester’s lovely Botanic Garden—preceded by a guided tour and talk on the history of its splendid houses.

 The cost will be £5.00 per person—which covers everything.

Please book in advance by sending £5.00 (cheques made out to SCAS) to Nita Foale, 2 Clarendon Park Road, LE2 3AD—or signify your intention to attend by emailing:  nita.foale@btinternet.com.

It promises to be a lovely afternoon. We do hope you’ll be able to come

Founded with the assistance of the Leicester Literary and Philosophical Society, the Botanic Garden was established in Oadby in 1947 in the grounds of four Edwardian houses: Beaumont, Southmeade, The Knoll and Hastings which are now used as student residences. Their separate gardens have been merged and now form 16 acres of lovingly cultivated grounds and greenhouses with a wide variety of planting, natural habitats, form and colour.
