January Journals & Membership Renewals

Following an administrative error by our printers/mailing house it appears the January Journal and Membership Renewal notices have been completely mis-matched. A large portion of the membership having a renewal notice enclosed, when renewal is not due, and vice versa.

Where-ever possible I will be emailing members whose renewals are now due. If you do not receive either an email or letter from the Society but believe your renewal is due, please contact: membership@nottsfhs.org or write to: Membership Secretary, Notts FHS, 20 South Street, Long Eaton, Nottingham, NG10 1ER. Please note: If any member makes a payment which is not yet due, it will be treated as an early July/August renewal.

Please accept both the printers and our apologies for this mistake and rest assured we are both working to resolve this issue as soon as possible.

Peter Banham, Membership Secretary
