When to Pay:

The club allows members who have their account in credit to pay their annual membership and caravan fees in
two installments, the first installment on the 1st of October and
the second on the 1st of April. This is to make it a little easier
on the pocket for everyone. This option is only for club membership
and caravan annual fee and not for any other of the annual fees payable. We respectfully
ask that all club members pay their annual fees promptly.

How to Pay:

To make it easier, we have a range of options for
club members to pay their fees.

The following methods are available:

By electronic banking: Either as one off
transactions or as monthly standing orders. If you wish to
use this method you can get the club bank details from the office.

By credit or debit card: We can take payments over the
phone or in person using credit and debit cards. We reserve the right to pass on credit card fees.

By cheque: Payable to Cotswold Gliding Club and posted in
the envelopes provided into the office letterbox.
