Due to the issues raised from gathering overdue membership subscriptions on a year by year basis the Society has decided that as from 2018 subscriptions from all members will be raised from standing orders - cheques will only be accepted in very exceptional circumstances.

Please email the membership secretary for the details that you will need in order to set up a standing order payment with your bank.
