E-news bulletin March 2022
Our next study day, Renovating a Lost Art: Stained Glass in Britain, 1750-1900, will take place on 18 March, led by Martin Harrison and there are still places available.
There are also a few places left on the visit to Bristol Cathedral on 24 March, led by John McNeill.
Paying for Society events
The Society has found that some people are making event bookings with the intention of paying by cheque or bank transfer but are then failing immediately to post a cheque or make the bank transfer. This means that often places on Study Events can be blocked so that other people who want to attend cannot make a booking.
Our expectation is that people will make payments for booked events quickly. From now onwards, please make sure that bank transfer and cheque payments are made within a week of the order being placed. Orders which remain unpaid after this time will be cancelled and the member will have to book again if they want to attend an event.
