I was against keeping the cheque facility but was persuaded

hobby as inclusive as possible.
a result BATC does still take cheques and as a result of
COVID we found that you can post cheques to your branch
along with a paying in slip – an easy and not time consuming
process which we consider worthwhile for a few members who
feel more comfortable doing this rather than on-line

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
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

direct transfer (UK members only)

time, in the 21st Century, to stop accepting cheque
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
