Due Date

Annual Membership subscriptions are due from 1st April every year. Subscriptions are either Full Year on any date between 1st April to 30th September, or Half Year at any date between 1st October and 31st March.

Standing Orders must commence from 1st April. Half Year subscriptions are one off payments and are therefore not payable by Standing Order.
