When applying for tickets to an event advertised
in SWIN it is preferable that each WI order and pay using one cheque or by
BACS.  However, if the event is
marked ** it means that INDIVIDUAL applications are permitted and a member’s
personal cheque may be sent direct to the office when applying. 
Also, just because the ‘closing date’ has passed,
does not necessarily preclude members from phoning the office to see if there
are still places/tickets available for the event, course or class – it is
always worth a call.




HAS YOUR WI started planning their Perfect
Pollinator for RHS Wisley in June ?
