As in previous years
we will offer an early-start option for a small premium on new
memberships purchased at either Verulam Tackle Shop in St Albans or
Colney Tackle in Hazeldine Rd, London Colney. On-line and postal
applications will be for memberships to commence from June 16th.
Members should refer to their VAC newsletter dated March 2015, page 5.

expected to undertake at least one work-party before the end of April
and failure to do so attracts a work-party levy when renewing membership
equal to the prevailing joining fee. This is to ensure that work-party
obligations are not avoided by simply rejoining as a new member.
