The Membership Secretary and Treasurer have discretion to make concessions in hardship cases, or in cases where a parent is joining solely in order that a child can have Junior membership.

Our standard and strongly preferred method of paying subscriptions is by Direct Debit through a financial services provider called Gocardless.

If necessary for some reason, you can also join or renew membership by card payment or BACS transfer through our online shop but, as this causes us more administrative effort, we charge an additional £5 a year on the direct debit rates, and the late season discount is not available.

If you have any queries about joining, or if paying our  subscription rates would cause you hardship, please contact
