We feel sure you will agree that the membership fee provides extremely good value.

Payment of fees may be by cash or personal cheque made payable to Dunfermline Art Club. Committee Members will be on hand at the club to receive and record payment and issue your new membership card. A facility to make payment directly to the clubs account via bank transfer is also available if preferred. Details available from the Treasurer.
