Executive Committe, October 2016

The Society is a Registered Charity (No 1116749) founded in 1969. We have nearly 1000 members – Individuals, Corporate Members and Residents Associations. As a voluntary organisation we depend on the enthusiasm of our members which stems from the pleasure and satisfaction they derive from participating. Our activities are fun as well as fulfilling!

The Constitution was last amended in 2016. Our activities are managed by the Executive Committee. See our Annual Review 2015 for more information.

Annual Reviews for the past several years are archived with our Newsletters.

We are largely funded by membership fees and modest charges for some of our events. We also apply for grants for specific activities. We do not solicit donations either through street collections or direct appeals to the public.
