Central Scotland Branch Dry Stone Walling Association of GB

The DSWA of Great Britain is a registered charity that works to advance education in the craft and heritage of dry stone walling for the public benefit.

Central Scotland Branch (CSB), like other branches, runs beginners’ training courses and members’ events. CSB members’ events are free; for training courses we charge a fee. Members’ events are run to develop skill, enjoyment and understanding: we build & repair for other charities, community groups and good causes. Professional members work independently & also advise, train and support amateurs.

Current opportunity

Our current Treasurer has resigned for personal reasons but she will help you to become familiar with the role for as long as it takes. We'd like you to continue keeping records on the spreadsheet. In time, we'd welcome advice on expenditure. Half of the current committee live in or near Dundee or Perth and we'd like you to attend our meetings in person, around every two months. You would need to join the DSWA and CSB will fund that membership, and pay travel expenses. The DSWA works to advance education in the craft and heritage of dry stone walling for the public benefit.' Amateur members build walls for other charities, for community organisations and for good causes; professional members operate independently but assist us in our activities. The programme of members' events is published in February and runs from March to November; the winter months are a fairly quiet time for the Treasurer. Our financial year ends on 31 August, and your annual Branch accounts are prepared in a format specific to DSWA , examined locally and then sent to HQ to be collated into one larger report for the Charity Commission.
