MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL SECTION
Membership and the Current Coronavirus Pandemic - April 2020
In response to the current coronavirus pandemic the committee has taken the decision that this year's renewal fee will also cover next year's membership too. This is because we really have little idea when our activities will be able to resume, and once resumed, whether they will need to be suspended again.
This means whenever you renew the cost will be £15, or £11.50 for an associate member and will cover your membership until March 2022.
Many members have already renewed and we thank you for that because we do have some on-going expenses that need to be covered.
If you haven't renewed do not worry as everyone's membership has been extended and the usual 8 week grace period will be implemented from the date we start activities again.
In the meantime if you do wish to pay:
• Please pay ONLY by using the On-line portal or by using BACS. See details below
• DO NOT return a renewal form; it is not necessary.
• DO NOT send cash or cheques. The membership secretary does not need to make trips to the bank at this time.
If you wish to pay by cash or cheque please wait until our activities resume. The first two general meetings will be given over to group displays and the payment of membership fees.
Any person who joins during this year will also pay a single fee of £15 or £11.50 irrespective of when of they join, and this will also cover their membership for 21/22.
