Membership fees are normally due on the 1st January of each year, but 2020 has been an exceptional year both on a personal basis and for athletics in general. There has been scant competition at club level and the winter season has been written off for our major club level competition in the Metropolitan League. Nevertheless, most of you have continued to pay your annual subscriptions and the club is grateful that so many have done so to allow the club to function as normally as possible.
As a recognition of this, the club committee has agreed that the subscription year for 2020 will be extended for a further three months. Membership fees will now be due on the 1st April 2021. From there onwards, our subscription year will run from the 1st April each year to the following 31st March. This will now be in line with the registration year with England Athletics, which run in the same period.
Those new members joining from January to March 2021 will have their membership fees carried over into the new subscription year. Should they wish to compete and require registration for the current year, an additional fee will be required to register them for 2021.
2021 Membership Fees, including registration fees to England Athletics, are as follows:
Active Seniors (Over 21) £69.00 per annum.
Active Young Members (under 21)
Students, Unemployed and £49.00 per annum.
Non-Active and 2nd Claim £38.00 per annum.
England Athletics have indicated that there will be no increase in Registration Fees (currently £15) and therefore the club fees will also not increase.
The club committee hope that this recognises the value of the club members who have continued to pay their annual membership fees, despite diminished levels of competition.
A further notice will be issued, to remind club members of fees due, early in the new year.
