Re: UKMicrowave group Subscription - Cheque payments

Alan Melia

Hi John I get very few cheques these days for boxes. My solution is that my bank issues envelopes that may be deposited via the local post office. In the current situation a friendly neighbour puts then at the local PO and returns a confirmation slip and fresh envelope to me. I gues you could put them in a postbox but you dont get aa confirmation slip then. When submitted payment appears in my statement aroundtwo days later. I agree Paypal is easier. I fear loss of cash and cheques will destroy Rallies, and such in future.
Thanks for the subs reminder !

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
