Prices for 2023
When you join the club an account is set up in your name. We expect you to keep this account in credit. Some members have a standing order paying straight into the club's account (ask the Treasurer about this) while others prefer to pay as they go. At the clubhouse, cheques and money should be put in one of the brown envelopes provided, with the details of the payment clearly written on the outside.
