To all members of Buckingham & District U3A
At a committee meeting of Buckingham & District U3A in July 2020, it was decided that in the light of the coronavirus lockdown having deprived us of most of our opportunities for meeting up, we would roll all membership subscriptions made for 2019-20 over to also cover the year 2020-21.
Could you therefore please cancel your standing order for the coming year and apply for it to start again on 1st October 2021.
Please do this promptly, as if you forget, we will have to deem any inadvertent over-payments to be donations, as the admin involved in refunding payments will be too time-consuming. If you normally pay by bank transfer or cheque, this will not be a problem.
New Membership Cards for the year 2020-2021 will be sent out on 1st October. If you do not receive one, it may be because you forgot to pay for the current year. If so, I would be happy to process your payment and put it into next year.
All new memberships will be processed and charged as normal.
