Our membership process is based on an online secure database so we do encourage
you to complete all your details via our
link and then print-out and post your application with your payment. That way
there's less risk of error with key details such as postal and email addresses.
We also invite you to upload your passport-style photo which saves you having to
print out your picture or use one of those booths.
Payment can be made via cheque or Postal Order and we also invite you to
complete a Direct Debit form to make renews easier for future seasons. Currently
we can only accept payment via credit card for over the counter sales. Payment
via on-line banking will be introduced later this year.
