You can pay by cash or cheque. Just download a form here and post or hand-deliver it, together with your payment, to our membership secretary.

Alternatively, you can pay by electronic (BACS) transfer.  Our details are;

Lloyds TSB Bank PLC     Sort code:  77-15-25    Account number: 08658960

When you have made the transfer, please e-mail our membership secretary (nita.foale@gmail.com) with your name and address so that we know that you have rejoined. Thank you.

 

Members – set up a standing order before April 1st and save money!

The Society’s running costs are relatively low but they have been steadily increasing in recent years.

In response,  the committee has reluctantly decided to raise the cost of single annual membership for the forthcoming year to £8, beginning 1st April 2019.

As a `thank you’ for helping make our job easier, however, existing members who set up a regular standing order payment before this date will qualify for the old rate of £6 per year.  This includes your whole family or household.

A standing order payment ensures that your membership will be renewed automatically every year.  It gives you one less thing to think about and now it could also save you money.  There’s an incentive!

Just click on the link below,  print off  a form, complete it and pass it on to your bank/building society (please also detach and return the bottom section to our membership secretary – address included).
