New Pensioner & Concessionary Memberships
A pensioner is a member that has reached State Pension Age (66). From 2021 whilst renewing pensioners can re-join, no NEW pensioners will be accepted into the club.
To qualify for a pensioner membership going forward the member must first join the club as a SENIOR member and upon completion of THREE consecutive years of membership the reduced fee will be applied at the pensioner rate at that time. From 2021, only renewing pensioners aged over 70 will receive a free Overstamp. This applies to both existing pensioners and future qualifiers.
The concessionary class was removed from 2021. Concessionary memberships may be renewed or awarded to existing members ONLY at their request and at the Committee’s discretion.
