Dear Member,     



At the first meeting of 2008 it was reluctantly decided that due to the increased level of costs that have arisen over the recent years a review of our membership fees would have to take place. Membership fees have remained unchanged since our foundation in 2001, a remarkable feat in this day and age and one of which we can all be proud. Our ability to retain our fees at this level owes much to the support that we have received from our members with donations, the gift of second class postage stamps etc all of which has been greatly appreciated by the Heritage Group. The new format for the newsletter, for which we have received many good reports, has added to our costs as it now costs approximately 1.00 for each newsletter printed. Members now receive four issues per year and when viewed against our income it becomes obvious that our fees have to be adjusted in order that we are able to maintain this level.


In order that the new membership rates are as fair as possible to all members we have introduced new grades for couples and the classifications are listed below. We hope that you will accept these increases as still offering excellent value for money and that we will receive your renewal subscriptions in due course. The new subscription rates are: -


Family membership        - 15.00 per year           Corporate membership               - 15.00 per year

Standard Member           - 10.00 per year           Standard couple                      - 12.50 per year

Retired member             - 5.00 per year             Retired couple                          - 7.50 per year

Junior member               - 5.00 per year


Once again it is requested that in order to help defray newsletter postage costs it is considered appropriate to request that those members who receive JAFL by post to donate a book of 2nd class stamps with their renewal.


Should you wish to contact me, or if I can offer any assistance then I will be pleased to respond to all enquiries received. My contact details are shown below.


We value your interest in our current projects and hope that you will continue to participate & support us by renewing your subscription.
