lUK Membership

Paying by Direct Debit saves the Society money, so we prefer it as a payment method, and it ensures your subscription renewal never gets forgotten! You can also pay by cheque or postal order.

Please note that we can only process Direct Debit payments for members with UK bank accounts.

Overseas Membership

Overseas applicants may draw a cheque payable in pound sterling (£/GBP) on a UK bank, or pay using PayPal – please email Membership Secretary for more details.

We cannot accept foreign currency cheques because the bank charges are so high.

UK £ 25.00
Europe & Rest of World £ 30.00
