Joining & Renewing Membership

Existing Account Holders Beware

Having moved to a new platform, it's not yet been possible to migrate the old accounts. If you want to renew your membership please create a new account. In doing so, you will have access to a lot more settings on your account, including the ability to define your entry in the membership directory, which will be repopulated as members renew.

By default your membership will show as 'new' and starting from the date you renew. If you would like this to be corrected please email me with your correct join date and I will amend your membership record accordingly.

If you have any problems creating or logging into your account, please contact me directly by emailing and I will do my best to help you.

I apologize for any inconvenience caused.
