Subscription 2021/2022

The Committee has reduced the subscription rate to £10 for an individual member for the next subscription year, 2021/2022. This includes a newsletter sent by email.  If you prefer a print newsletter rather than email, the cost is an additional £8 for the year. 

The subscription is monitored and reviewed at our Annual General Meeting in May each year to ensure that we can fulfil our commitments based on stable long-term financial management.

How do I renew?

Please remember to renew your subscription for our next membership year by the end of May 2021. The 2021/22 subscription is £10 for an individual with email newsletter (or £18 if you want a printed newsletter). For two people at the same address the rate is £20 with email newsletter (or £28 to include one printed newsletter).

There are no renewal forms to complete, but please let me know of any changes in personal contact details by phone (see committee list) or at
