We’re not your traditional family or local history society, and our membership renewal process may be a little different to that you’ve seen with other societies. Here’s how the renewal process works: 

I joined and paid via Paypal – now what?

If you originally paid via Paypal then this created an annual charge in your Paypal account. On the anniversary of your registration your membership renewal will be automatically charged to your Paypal account. Easy! You’ll receive full access to our website and other membership benefits for the 12 months from the date of payment.

If you prefer not to have this auto-renewal in place, you can cancel it yourself within your Paypal account (see https://www.paypal.com/uk/smarthelp/article/how-do-i-cancel-an-automatic-payment-i-have-with-a-merchant-faq2058).

I wish to retain membership but cancelled my Paypal automatic renewal – now what?

If we don’t receive your renewal payment when expected then we’ll be in touch shortly thereafter, however we suggest you contact our Treasurer ahead of your anniversary date to let us know your wishes. You can go ahead right now and make a one-off payment for your membership renewal via Paypal.

I paid cash/bank payment when I joined – now what?

For those of you that paid via more traditional payment methods, we’ll remind you when your renewal is due, and follow up with a further email if we don’t receive your payment on time. We don’t pay a bank fee if you pay us by bank transfer, so more of your membership will go towards supporting the aims of the Society. If you wish to pay by bank transfer, please use your name as a reference. Our bank details are:

I paid cash when I joined but would like to switch to Paypal for renewals – now what?

No problem, go ahead now and make an auto-renewing payment from your Paypal account (if you prefer to make a one-off payment this year you can do that too).

I have more questions?

Contact our treasurer if you have any further questions about your membership status or renewal payments.
