Our membership year runs from April to March, so your membership fees would ordinarily be due for renewal on the 1st April 2020.
However, with the escalating COVID-19 crisis, these are unprecedented times.
With the club now closed for the foreseeable future, people concerned about personal finances, and all members rightly focussing all their time and energy on looking after their family, neighbours, jobs, businesses etc., this should be the last thing on your minds.
We are therefore postponing membership renewal until the 1st July 2020 at the very earliest.
All existing memberships will be extended free, until such time as we can see some light at the end of the tunnel and can determine a way forward that looks after all our members and the club as a whole.
Your existing membership of RLTC will automatically continue free of charge until things are clearer and you don’t need to do anything*, giving you one less thing to think about in these difficult and worrying times.
** N.B. If you pay by Standing Order
You will need to cancel your Standing Order arrangement with your bank
after your March 2020 payment. **
However, should you be in a position where you can renew your membership on the 1st April 2020 as normal, we would be hugely appreciative of this.
Although the club is closed, we do have ongoing costs and we have taken the decision to support our coaching team financially during the ongoing crisis. They have worked incredibly hard to build an amazing coaching programme which is now the heartbeat of the club and we need to do everything we reasonably can to look after them to protect the long term future of our club. We can’t let this crisis undermine all this fantastic work and we’ve got lots more success to achieve together when we come out of the other side.
You can renew your membership as normal, anytime, at our online shop which you can visit by clicking the button below. If you pay your membership via Standing Order*, and want to keep this going, please still order a membership for 2020 via the online shop to update your membership details, so that we can keep all our records up to date.
* If you do decide to renew your membership now, it will be at the same cost as last year. Whilst we agreed at our recent AGM to increase fees for the first time in 8 years, now is absolutely not the time for this and therefore any increase in fees will be delayed until 2021 at the very earliest.
