Membership Renewal 2024

Society membership is due for renewal on 1st March 2024.

The base subscription will continue at just £24. Postal supplements for overseas members will also remain at the current rates of £7 f EU members and £10 for Rest of the World members.

The overall strategy for subscriptions will continue to be (unless significant events disrupt it!):

  • Maintain core subscription at level necessary to cover present level of Society activity
  • Charge mailing costs to non-UK members at or slightly below cost (judged from previous year)
  • Maintain discount for automatic renewal (direct debit) at present level
  • Members have until 1st June to complete their renewal.

    If you have any questions, want to check if your renewal has been received or want to discuss your renewal then please email the Membership Secretary at

    The renewal process is now open. You can renew:
