We have had several queries from members concerned that their Direct Debits (or BACS payments) haven’t been collected as usual during February and worried that their membership has lapsed. Let me put minds at rest, you are still on the database and still a member, just one who hasn’t paid the renewal as yet.
The delay is due to applications for the new treasurer, secretary and membership secretary to be able to access the account being stopped by the bank. We are all in the process of re-applying, having our IDs validated and so on. We hope it will go through soon but obviously Covid is delaying things, getting people together to witness and sign forms for example is impossible. Once the treasurer can access the account he will process your renewals.
