Your Committee has decided to stop issuing yearly membership cards. After
all, these are never used but, with over 1100 members, they involve a lot
of work, most of it concentrated at the beginning of January. New members
will receive a membership card as an initial receipt.
Those of you who pay by standing order and rely on the arrival of the card
in January to remind you of this should have no concern. Starting now, the
address label on your Newsletter envelope
will show an "S", meaning that a standing order exists and your
subscriptions are up to date.
A standing order is very easy for all concerned and anyone who would like to
start paying in this way should write to or telephone our Membership
Secretary - see back page - and say so.
Another letter that may appear on Your address label is of course the "G"
that indicates a Gift Aid declaration, enabling us to recover tax at no cost
to the member. Most of you have signed such a declaration, but if you
haven't and would like to do so (and are a taxpayer) please tell our
Treasurer. The address label may also contain a "D" followed by a number,
which indicates that your Newsletter is delivered by hand.
If you would like to start paying by standing order and also make a Gift Aid
declaration (check your address label - no "S" or "G") then tell either
Philippa Isaac, our Membership Secretary, or Ken Wilson, our Treasurer - one
call will do both!
