Payment for Rallies - Monday, September 20, 2021

We have been informed by our bank that from the 1st November 2021 we wil be charged for the use of the account at 40p per cheque and 0.4% for all cash transactions. There will be no charge for BACs or Bank Transfers.

Whilst these charges are individually quite small, the accumulative effect on Centre accounts over a full year could be reasonably substantial due to the number of cheques processed. The Committee have decided to take no immediate action, the Centre will initially absorb these costs, however the situation will be kept under review.

Costs to the Centre would be substantially reduced if members pay by Bank Transfer instead of cheques. Both deposits and/or full payments can be made easily by following the instructions given in the link :

Payment for Rallies

Members are asked to consider the use of Bank Transfer for as many payments as possible.

There would be no change to present fees, which are all listed under the relevant rally, and if refunds become due they would also be made by Bank Transfer by the Treasurer. Not only would this reduce Centre costs, but it would also speed up the process.



2022 Centre Committee - Monday, September 13, 2021

The proposed 2022 Centre Committee is presently short of 4 members, including a Vice-Chairman.

A full Committee greatly assists in the efficient running of the Centre.

AGM 2021 - Thursday, August 12, 2021

Due to a change in management we are no longer able to hold the AGM at Corsham School.

The venue has now been changed to Lyneham Primary School, Preston Lane, Lyneham.

An email has been sent to all members at their registered email address informing them of the change.

A small rally will accompany the AGM, details on the "Rallies" page, however there is plenty of room for those who only wish to attend the AGM itself.

Full details of the AGM can be found using the "AGM 2021" tab on the righthand side bar.
