I hope you have had an enjoyable summer.

We do hope you will renew your membership for the coming year and also encourage new members to join. The annual subscription remains the same as last year (Individual £35; Household £53; Student £18; Associate £14), subject to agreement at the AGM. If you are unable to renew your membership, can you please let me know, as soon as possible, Ann James email address ( as a membership return has to submitted to the main SRP Membership Secretary. If you are not renewing because you cannot attend many meetings, why not consider becoming a Country & Overseas member? You will then still get the magazine and membership list and you can attend the Guildford meetings for £4.00 per meeting instead of the usual £7.00 (non SRP member) visitor fee.
