Membership Renewal

As mentioned in my recent update, we will be processing our membership renewals from 1st July 2020.  As approved at the AGM, we have reduced the rates to reflect the reduction in club sessions caused by the current COVID-19 pandemic but are making plans on how things will return as soon as the guidelines allow this.

The membership year will run until 31st March 2021 in line with England Athletics and all current memberships along with their EA affiliation will be a continuous period which will be renewed as if it was from 1st April 2020.

We know that some members have been affected financially by the restrictions and we want to try and support these people where we can.

Therefore our first ask, is that if anyone wants to, there is an option to pay a voluntary contribution and pay the 'normal' rate.  Any funds generated in this way, will be matched by the club which will go towards supporting those affected.

Secondly, if anyone has been financially affected and wants to renew their membership but is unable to pay at this time, then all we ask is that you drop me an email with the title of "2020 Membership Renewal Support".  All we need is your name (if it's not obvious from your email address), nothing more is required and nothing will be asked.  We will then contact you to advise how to process your renewal.

We have tried to smooth the whole process to make things as easy as possible, but by renewing promptly, you can help save a great deal of work!
