AGM – and Club Membership Fees

Thanks to those of you who made the time to attend our online AGM last week – we really appreciated your support! We’ll publish the full minutes in due course, but in the meantime…

…one of the items we discussed was the possibility of increasing our membership fees next year to help us cover our overhead costs including insurance and equipment repairs (while looking at the same time to reduce the cost of some of our activities). One advantage to us is that membership fees attract Gift Aid from HMRC, which means that the Government contributes 25% extra to us for every subscription we receive from a UK taxpayer (which doesn’t apply to the fees we charge for activities).

The trustees haven’t yet set the rates for next year, so this is just a heads-up that this change might be coming. Do let us know if you have any strong feelings either way on this!
