You can read our August 2019 SCAS Newsletter by visiting the Newsletters page.

If you enjoy it, why not consider joining the Society?

Annual membership is only £8 (per household) and for this you can be as active or inactive as you choose. You’ll receive the newsletter three times a year, an invitation to regular events and the chance to meet the committee at our annual general meeting in May (where there’s usually a guest speaker and free coffee and biscuits). We’ll also keep you informed about any potentially controversial planning applications.

We are lucky to have a conservation area like Stoneygate but there is  a lot of work involved in safeguarding it. Your subscription will help us cover our costs, improve our website and maintain the standards of the newsletter.

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).
