17 October 2016 A reminder that the deadline for submitting bids by post for the Convention Auction is now past. Bids can be submitted by e mail up to the sale date 1200hrs BST on 22nd October) and I will do my best to get them entered. I always respond to e mail bids with a confirmation so if you don't receive one I probably have not received your bids - try again. I will be travelling and e mail access may be patchy.

29 September 2016 A reminder that subscriptions for the 2016/2017 season are due this weekend. our thanks to those many members who have already paid and a reminder to those who have not that you will need to pay by the end of October to secure the 'Earlybird' discount rates.
