Your 2023 membership will still work up to 29th February and this also includes our Membership Draw on a Saturday night. If you would like to pay without your invoice you can come to the bar and the bar staff can take your payment and give you your 2024 membership card with a till receipt. We are sorry for any inconvenience but once we have most of our data next year's subscriptions will go so much easier for all.

Changes to Membership Structure Important - Forms available at the bar
Please Read Complete the Membership Application and return to RSA as soon as possible.
This will enable us to update Members files
The WWRSA has recently updated its membership software to reflect our new membership and subscription structure.
The associated research has revealed significant gaps in our membership records so, to rectify this, it is important that each member completes the revised application form and send this to the office, even though you may already be a member of long standing. In particular, military service details are sought to ensure that our returned and service members are recognised and valued for that service.
Of note is the reduced number of membership types, a significant reduction in complimentary memberships and the removal of the ’couples’ option which means that all members will now require their own individual membership and application. Our policy is free membership for those aged 90 years and over although this hasn't always been correctly applied in the past. These changes are designed to simplify our membership data so we can better serve individual members with assistance where their status necessitates it.
Subscription levels have been reviewed to reflect the increased costs of capitation, administration and overheads. Historically, we have absorbed these running costs with lower subscription income and generally without increasing our bar prices but, as you are all aware, inflation has impacted this model and a small increase in subscriptions has become necessary.
We will be emailing out the 2024 membership invoices progressively over the next couple of weeks. Please note that all membership subscriptions paid by the end of January automatically go in the prize draw for a free Weber BBQ. Payment can be made either online (details on your invoice) or at the bar.
We trust that these changes are accepted and that the increased subscription fees will not be a burden to you. We look forward to your renewed membership and your continued participation in our association.
