Standing Orders are brilliant for the forgetful, but please note that we have no forms to set this up. Please go to your bank with our bank details and get them to set it up for you.
Direct Debits vs Standing Orders: We have no facility to set up a Direct Debit for you, so please set up a Standing Order if you want to make a regular annual payment. With a Standing Order we cannot change the amount that leaves your account, so if the subscription rate should go up, you will have to change the amount your end.

We can still accept payment by Credit Card, but please note that this is processed by Northern Bee Books. We would much prefer a PayPal payment, as it reduces our workload significantly. If you have no other option than to pay by card and do not want to use PayPal, please send the card number, expiry date and security code to the Administrator (safest in paper form).
