Invitations to renew your subscription for the membership year commencing 1st March 2024 are scheduled to be sent by email on week beginning Monday 29th January.  You will be sent an invitation unless:

  • You have joined the Association since 1st December 2023, have already renewed your subscription or pay your subscription by Direct Debit (i.e. you do not need to manually renew at this time)
  • You have previously advised us that you do not wish to renew your subscription
  • We do not have a valid email address stored against your membership record

If you wish to act on the invitation, please take time to read the instructions provided in it, which are divided into three sections.  The first is for members who have joined online or renewed online in the past, the second is for those who haven’t used the online renewal system in the past and now wish to do so, and the last is for members who wish to renew by phone, mail etc.  If you want to renew by cheque please wait for February Bulletin, due for mailing from Warners on Friday 9th February, which will contain full renewal instructions.  These will be on page three.

Please pay particular attention to the renewal option you select.  If you see a NEW subscription in your shopping basket as opposed to a subscription RENEWAL, you will pay £3 extra to renew for the coming year.  Please go back, empty your basket and start again.  Every year a small number of new subscriptions are taken out which were intended as renewals, resulting in an extra cost to the purchaser, and also creating extra work for the Association and the renewals team at Warners.  Remember also that you can change the type of membership subscription as part of the renewal if what you’ve had in the past no longer meets your needs.  You can also take out a Direct Debit to renew your subscription if you wish.

If you have queries or difficulty, please contact Warners at or by phone number on 01778 392016 (outside the UK call 00 44 1778 392016).  Likewise, if you expect to but don’t receive an invitation, please contact Warners.  We’re unable to send out invitations ourselves.  If after two working days you haven’t received or aren’t satisfied with the response, please contact me at
