Re: UKMicrowave group Subscription - Cheque payments

John Lemay



I agree – online payments in one form or another should be used.


However, I do from time to time receive cheques to my business. I have a banking app on my mobile phone and it enables me to pay in cheques by uploading a photo of the front and rear of the cheque. It’s a little tedious but much better than going to a bank and queuing.

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
