CHANGE TO CONSTITUTION
Members have been sent a letter outlining these proposed changes in full:
The main rationale for the changes in the constitution are
- To remove any references to senior citizens as it is no longer applicable to offer a reduced membership for this category.
- To update the details of Reduced Memberships
- To ensure we have sufficient council members
Council proposes to increase the subscription rates from 1st October 2022 to:
- Ordinary/Corporate: £20
- Joint/Family: £25
- Reduced/Junior: £15
For new members these rates will take effect from 2nd October 2021.
