Dear Members

At the AGM we agreed an increase to our annual subscriptions and to introduce a new category of, Family – 2 adults and any number of children at the same address.

The new, agreed subscriptions are:

Individual Adult                                          £52.50 (£45.00)
Two adults same address                          £90 (£75)
Family                                                        £104.00

(Two adults and any number of children at the same address)

Youth                                                             £25.00 (£25.00)

Council have worked very hard over the last few years to stabilise our finances, with a large degree of success. On behalf of our members, I would like to thank them for the work they have done to achieve this.

Over the last few months, the economic environment we all live in has become tougher and we have had feedback from our members regarding costs.

As a result of the work that council has done, member feedback, and our resulting improved financial position, council voted at our last meeting to defer the increase in subscriptions until January 2024.

Subscriptions for January 2023 will remain at:

Individual Adult                                             £45.00

Two Adults at same address                         £75.00

Youth                                                             £25.00

We also agreed that we would go ahead with the family membership at a reduced cost of £90.00.

I would ask again that you help your association by paying your subscriptions promptly in January 2023 and updating the date and amount of any standing orders if you have them.
