The International Guild of Town Pipers "Waits Website" (www.townpipers.org.uk) has developed over the years and is now quite large, containing historical records, music, records of our festivals and other activities, images, literary quotes, links and a whole lot more. This valuable resource requires significant server space and quite a lot of maintenance.
In order to assist with the cost of running the website, the Directors decided to institute a system of membership, which will confer significant benefits, although the content of the site will remain freely accessible.
The benefits of membership are:
Instead of the membership year running from September to August, the Directors have decided to have the membership year run from 1st January until the 31st December (this change was made on 4th October 2010 - effectively giving members 4 free months during 2010 (September, October, November and December)). The annual membership fee will be £10 per person, but with a maximum of £50 for a band with five or more members. The Directors of the Guild hope that you will join, thereby giving financial support to the on-going development of the Waits Website and the other activities of the Guild.
