The Grantown Society is a SCIO: that is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation ie a charity.  Our number is SC050104. 
Membership of The Society is open to anyone over 16. It provides ready access to information about events and meetings.

 The Society depends on a modest annual voluntray subscription from members, and ‘open’ collections taken at meetings, for its working funds. Although meetings are open to members and non-members alike being a ‘member’ ensures that you receive advance notice of the Society’s activities and notifications of any unforeseen alterations to the published programme.  Members are identified as "local" (or ordinary) and "strathspey" or "national" (or associate) according to postcode/community council area.
