These elements have yet to be put in place. Instead the emphasis has been on attacting the membership from which officers will be appointed and through whose efforts a range of member-benefits will be developed. One of the key intentions is to be the source of funding beyond the local authority grants upon which the survival of the Heritage Centre remains to this day - and upon which reliance there must continue to be an expectation, however marginal that might be made to become.
To this end, a recruiting flyer / sign-up form has been devised. Copies are being located at various sites in and around the Town. The process is extremely simple. Registration to be a member requires only the completion of the form, the writing of a cheque to value £20 to cover the first year's membership, and the handing-in of the form and cheque to the CAH&IC at its office in Arnold House, 31 High Street.
The flyer / sign-up form is additiuonally available as a .pdf here, alongside the "Expression of Interest" form which has been there for some weeks. (This new sign-up form is the natural 'next step' in the process of establishing the Friends. We thank all of you who have responded to the Expression of Interest invitation.) The sign-up form can be printed off quite readily.
