The issuing of membership renewals is imminent, and members are asked to complete the form in order that we can keep an accurate up-to-date list. It is especially important for those who are making a donation to complete the gift aid section, including signing the declaration, as the club can reclaim the tax deemed to have been paid to the extent of 25p in the pound. At this time of year with the preparation for the season in full swing prompt payment would be appreciated as the club has extra bills to meet. Completed forms and payment can either be sent to John Swanson at the address shown on the top of the form or can be left behind the bar in the Eastgate Clubrooms.
