Re: UKMicrowave group Subscription - Cheque payments

But yes, you might as well stop accepting cheques
Llittle reason to use them these days.
Last one I wrote was in 2017 to the bathroom fitter.  He said cash or cheque were both as easy/ same effort required.

My bank (Lloyds) offered this.  I think it required you to use the mobile banking app on your smartphone and control the camera from that.   Being a dedicated app, rather than via WWW, security and authentication can be properly controlled.
No different, really, to their auto paying-in facility at my local branch.

Didn't see a PC version of the cheque paying-in option.

Some banks have arrangement for paying in cheques using scanned copies sent to them. May be worth investigating.

Subject: [UKMicrowaves] UKMicrowave group Subscription - Cheque payments


Due to the current situation I am unable to get to the bank to pay in cheques. So if you've sent me one recently, don't expect it to clear in the foreseeable future.


I will of course advise the membership secretary that the sub  has been paid if you do. 


You could really help by not paying your £6 (!!) by cheque,  and using our Paypal facility  (ukug@...) or contact me off reflector for UKuG bank details and doing a direct transfer (UK members only)


On reflection I'm of the view it's time, in the 21st Century, to stop accepting cheque payments altogether.


I plan to raise this with the committee in due course.


This currently is only my personal view as treasurer as I have to get in to my car, drive 5 miles in to Cambridge, park up, and walk for 20 minutes (from the only remaining free parking close to Cambridge Centre) to take them to the bank.


I'd appreciate member's feedback on this proposal
