Membership Notes


Membership Fees

Payment of a membership fee does no more than secure membership of the charity and does not secure a right to personal use of charity facilities or services.

Members joining part way through a year can pay a reduced first-year fee – ask for details

Gift Aid

Membership fees and other donations qualify under the Gift Aid scheme where the member qualifies and agrees to participate in that scheme.

Membership Form

See TDSWC Charity Documents and Forms page.

Member Contributions

Members are requested to participate in the running of the organisation by undertaking voluntary duties.

These may include organising on water activities, helping to provide safety cover, helping to maintain the club facilities and assisting with the general running of the organisation.

There are normally 4 days per year when working parties are arranged and members are requested to attend at least 2 of these in addition to other designated duties.

The organisation could not exist without its members providing membership funding and the volunteer support needed and wishes to thank its members for making this vital contribution.
