Our membership year runs from January.
The annual fee for 2024 will be  £30

For 2024 the fee structure is changing. LBAS has had a successful couple of years and in view of that and the cost of living crisis,  the cost of membership has been reduced for now.

The annual subscription Jan 2024 – Dec 2024 is  reduced to £30 plus other household members may join for £15. So effectively couples membership is now £45 , but other members living at the same address also only pay £15. members must live at the same address to qualify

Non-member guests at meetings are asked to pay ,£6 for regular meetings , although we will occasionally charge more to help cover the costs of a more expensive demonstrator. Please check the information against each meeting in Diary Pages/Meetings. If you join as a member haveing paid a visitor fee that month it is deducted from the membership fee.
