Renewal Process:


Existing members. Renewal forms are sent out in May. If you were a member in previous seasons then please DO NOT apply as a new member. Please follow the Existing Members process below. Your six digit ID number is on your membership card.


Whilst we recommend Direct Debit we also accept payment by form of cheque or on-line via Paypal. A small charge of 2 is added to cover the charges that Paypal apply to the VAC.


The general process for renewal is the same as previous years in that you tick the membership(s) you require, plus any extras, add up the costs and send back the completed form plus your cheque payment (if not already paid by Paypal. And remember, we must have your email address on our system.  Existing membership cards remain valid until June 15th. New season cards will not be dispatched until around June 9th so please do not chase for your new card until mid June.


Work Party Levy. Existing able-bodied adult members are required to complete a work-party before end April. Failure to do so will result in a levy being applied at renewal equal to the prevailing joining fee. This applies equally to half-season members. We have a small amount of 'low-impact' work party duties such as envelope stuffing. Please contact the VAC Secretary if you have difficulties with being able to complete a normal work-party, typically three hours of bank clearance on a VAC venue.
