Renewal of Membership

All memberships expire on December 31st every year. You will be advised how and when they can be renewed in the newsletter.

Current Renewal Fees

One Person £5.00

Two people (living at same address) £10.00

We would prefer you to renew through Beacon*, as this eliminates the time spent by our volunteers dealing with cheques and entering data. If you can't do this we are offering payment by bank transfer or by post.

Online through Beacon* (Preferred Option)
You will have to confirm your identify as a member via the Beacon 'Members Portal'.

You will be given the choice of paying with a debit or credit card or using your own PayPal Account. All payments will be processed through PayPal.

Pay by Beacon* Members Portal

Payment by Bank Transfer (BACS)
If you cannot use Beacon, you can pay by Bank Transfer.
