May I take this opportunity to remind Members that have not paid their subs this year that we are still keeping open, for the time being, the offer of LIFE membership at a reduced fee of £20 Single and £30 Joint. Once we have reached the target of 100, this offer will be withdrawn, so I strongly advise those of you who have not taken it up to do so.

Please let me know if you intend to come to the meeting so that I have some idea of the numbers to cater for. My telephone number is 01502 575771.
