Renewals for 2023

Advice about renewals will be sent individually to all members in November 2022.  We need to do this as we are planning to move all members who are happy with the arrangement onto automatic renewal, which will occur in early January 2023.  Those who do not wish for automatic renewal will be able to stay with the existing system.

So – please look out for an email about membership renewal soon!
