Want to pay by cash, cheque, standing order or bank transfer?

We prefer that members pay by Direct Debit because this helps to reduce our administration costs (we are a charity), but if you’d prefer to pay by any of these other methods, we understand.

Please go ahead and complete your Application Form, then contact our Administrator (contact details below) to arrange payment.
