Standing Orders and Gift Aid


To enable us to run our membership administration efficiently, saving time and reducing costs, we would encourage you to set  up a standing order to pay your membership. An initial payment

is due on joining the Club and thereafter it would be automatically collected on 1st January each year.


If you are a tax payer, please consider signing a gift aid form allowing the Club to claim back the tax paid on your membership from the Inland Revenue. There is no cost to you and there is no set time committment.
