New Members - please note
Our ‘accounting year’ runs from the 1st October to the 30th September
, although the BBKA [to whom we pay the majority of subscriptions] runs from the 1st January until 31st December. In an effort to be fair, we do not accept new membership subscriptions after the end of June [and neither does the BBKA after 1st August], preferring you to hold over to the next financial year.  Subscriptions will become due in October, but we would prefer members to pay in September if possible and definitely before the AGM [normally in November], because you won’t be able to vote or enter into any competitions, if you are not a member.
