New Catch Return Form

wlaa Sat, 03/12/2016 - 10:54

A new catch return form has been added to the website for 2016. This will make it much easier for members to submit their returns which is a requirement of membership. As an association we are required to submit catch returns to our Landlord before the 14th of November each year, in order for us to do this accurately we have developed a catch return form that includes all the relevant data. The full report will also be available through this website after the AGM.

Please only submit one catch return form as multiple entries will distort the data output.

2016 Membership Cards are now in production, they should be ready this week and the first of our members for this year will receive them in the coming week. Due to the delay this year cards will be laminated with details of membership on the reverse side. Please make sure that you have completed the Webform application after payment to ensure that all details are included on your new card as additional cards may incur a charge.

We apologies for the delay in issuing membership cards this year.
