Subs Time again folks

Subs Time again folks

Hi all, Just a gentle reminder that its that time again when Subs are due. The membership form is updated for 2014 and downloadable from the membership page. Sue’s address is there, so just pop the form in the post with your cheque, or you can do a direct bank transfer, just drop Sue a note so she can link your payment and membership easily.
