Cost of Membership

The Subscription; includes the mandatory BMC charge, has been fixed by the Committee at:

  • £48 concession for members under 25 years

These amounts will be collected by Direct Debit in July. Subscription includes BMC subscription at the current rate and is required. Members with multiple BMC affiliated club memberships only need pay the BMC subscription once and any duplicate payments can be reclaimed from the BMC.
