Since March 2020 the Coronavirus pandemic has restricted the use of the RAFA Club for all of our members and the current lockdown is expected to continue until the end of April 2021. Due to these restrictions being announced by the Scottish Government and put in place intermittently for the best part of a year, the Committee have agreed that all existing Members will not have to renew their Membership of their Club subscriptions until 1st January 2022 allowing their existing Club Membership to continue until that date. Going forward all Club Memberships will be due to be paid by the first of January each year.
Should a person wish to join the Club at any other time during the year a Pro Rata amount of the full years Club Membership will be payable.
The extended Club Membership for existing Club Members until 1st January 2022 does not affect your membership of RAFA and this amount will still be payable as normal on a yearly basis. Membership of the club is only available to members of RAFA.
Once we are back open all existing Club Members will have to produce their Club Membership card when entering the Club. Any expiry date prior to and including 30 November 2020 will render your membership invalid and you will be asked to either pay an entry fee or be given the opportunity to pay a Pro Rata Club Membership until 1st January 2022.
Your Club Committee agreed that the extending of your existing Club Membership was the fair and honourable decision to take and you will be given the opportunity to consent and agree to the resolution at the Annual General Meeting to be provisionally held within the RAFA Club on Thursday 18th March at 7pm.
