Members are reminded that the subscription rate with effect from 1 January 2020 will be £22 (£30 overseas) per annum. The following actions are required dependent upon your method of payment.
Payment by Direct Debit
You need to take no action because the RNLI will do it for you. You will however get a standard RNLI letter one month before your renewal date which will say “Thank you for your donation of £22 “ and confirming it will be collected annually thereafter unless you cancel it. Please don’t be concerned about the letter, our account is administered by RNLI and it is a legal requirement that they issue this letter. We can assure you that the income will be allocated to your LBES membership.
Payment by Standing Order
It is your responsibility to instruct your bank to update it. Please ensure you do so before the next payment is due.
Payment by Cheque or BACS transfer
Please remember to do so at the new rate and where you use a cheque to make it payable to RNLI but send it to LBES treasurer.
To save administration costs we do not issue a reminder on your renewal date but will include a personal reminder with the Autumn Magazine to those members who have not yet submitted their annual subscription. No reminder means you are up to date.
