E-mail addresses needed
E-mail is the most cost-effective way of communicating, and will save the branch (and therefore BDS) money, which can be put to better use. Although we already have around 300 members’ e-mail addresses, there are 800 or so members in the branch. If you wish to be informed of forthcoming branch activities, please send your e-mail address to the Branch Secretary.
