Club News

It was with great sadness that we took the decision to postpone this year's National Event but, all being well, we'll have a great time next year at the rearranged event.  To keep everyone going in the meantime, here's a few photos from past National Events.

Take care everyone and hope to see you on the road soon!

We've been working on some updates to our website over the last few months and today we're delighted to be able to bring those changes to you.  We've updated all the software that runs the website to the latest versions and moved to a new host, which should bring you a smoother experience.  There's sure to be a few niggles that we'll try to iron out over the next few days.  If you have any problems, please contact Neil at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Key changes that you'll see are:

  • The site is now more mobile friendly and will reformat itself look better on your mobile device
  • Purchase of membership is no longer carried out via the online shop but now has a dedicated system which should ensure that new members get quicker access to member-only content.

Future changes planned are:

  • A more modern online shop that runs off your main website logon rather than requiring a separate one
  • Improved events calendar

New data protection legislation known as GDPR comes into force in May 2018 and, as part of this, the Club needs to make some changes.  We've created a new Privacy Notice explaining how we use the personal data of Club members.  We also need to ensure we have your consent to email you the Club Bulletin and any other ad-hoc news / event updates. If you're a Club member, please go here and update the "Contact me by email" field  (the "Contact me by email" field is about half way down the page) to let us know whether you're happy to receive these emails.

If you don't let us know your preferences, we'll no longer be able to send you updates by email!

Note that you'll still continue to receive the paper magazine and postal / email renewal reminders as usual if you don't update your preferences or opt-out of email communication.

At the AGM earlier this month we discussed some changes to our membership offering. So, we are now pleased to announce:

If you join or renew online there is no longer an administration fee.

We previously applied this fee to cover the additional costs the Club incurred for PayPal transactions, however in the interests of making it easier for people to join or renew without incurring an additional cost, this fee is now waived.


Web-Only Membership is now available to UK residents

We know many of you love receiving a printed magazine through your door, but if you're happy to read the mag online, UK residents can now get all the other benefits of Club membership for the price of £15.


Printed calendar now included in Web-Only Membership

We wanted to give Web-Only members even better value for money so from now UK and overseas Web-Only members will receive a copy of the Club calendar in the post each year.

So there's no better time to join us!
