Important news for existing concessionary members

Following phone calls to the membership secretary from two respected ex-committee members it was agreed unanimously at the 3rd Feb committee meeting that existing concessionaries can renew as concessionaries in future seasons and only new concessionaries must be aged 65+.  If any existing concessionary members aged 60-64 have already re-joined as adult members you will be entitled to a £26 discount on your concessionary membership fee for the 2017-18 season.
