The May mailing, comprising SMT, Bulletin, the 40th Anniversary Sticker Sheet and each member’s personalised Public Liability Insurance Certificate, is on schedule for collection today by Royal Mail from Warners Midlands, who perform printing and packaging.  It is being sent to all members who had renewed their membership as at first thing Monday 15th May.  A number of members have renewed after this time – they will receive their May packages toward the end of the month.  Any members who subsequently renews will receive the same package in the week after they renew.  I again encourage any member with a UK bank account who left it this late to renew their membership to take out a Direct Debit for next year’s renewal, which will perhaps help them and will certainly help the Association next year.

Thanks to Gareth for the 100 page bumper edition of SMT, Suzanne for Bulletin and Rod for the Anniversary Sticker Sheet.  I hope you all enjoy it when it arrives.

Alan Regan, Chairman and Membership Secretary
