How to renew

In 2015, we introduced online payments – and if you are already a member we will have set up an account for you if you wish to use it. You can still renew via the traditional renewal form if you would prefer.

If you would like to use our online system, you can login to your account with the links below. Once you are logged in, please click here to renew. This will show your current membership level in bold and you will see a ‘renew’ button next to it. After clicking ‘renew’, please scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the yellow Paypal button at the bottom of the page.

If you know your login details, please click here.

If you do not know your login details, please click here. You can enter your email address and click ‘Get New Password’. You will be sent an email, which contains your username, and will instruct you to reset your password. If the email doesn’t appear, please check your spam folder or email our Membership Secretary here.

For members who would prefer to renew via a different method, we will be emailing renewal forms to all members before your subscription is up for renewal – please contact the Membership Secretary if you have not received this email. If you would like any help renewing your membership, please get in touch and we will be happy to assist.
