Another great read.My thanks to the team that produced it. A great move forward to be able to renew subscriptions on line.

Got mine today here up north.

I just noticed there is a price tag of 5 per issue on the back cover. Can you buy the bulletin elsewhere other than by subscription?

I think it is so the society or museum can charge for back issues, it sets a price. They have always had a nominal cover price. There is no Bulletin only membership or subscription.

Looks like quite a few lovely TV related articles too!! Yipee.
Brilliant that we can now renew online- I've no idea how I did it last year: I haven't used cheques for years
Looks like a great read.
All the best

You probably wrote your card details on the form and posted it, or gave them to the membership secretary over the phone. The renewal form was obviously different last year as it had all the offline payment options.

The Bulletin goes to my Northern address Paul. My son has just left there and says it's not arrived yet so I'm not sure if the new Subscription system is on line only. Xmas/New Year is my usual renewal point. Are cheques now defunct?

You can still pay by cheque if you wish. Detail are on the yellow insert as usual.

Online is preferred as it is quicker for members and less work for us, but we are happy to accept your membership fees by any means.

I seem to remember there was an attempt to do away with traditional cheques not long ago, but the attempt was abandoned.

edit: I mean generally, not the BVWS.

A number of clubs and societies put prices on their journals because books and magazines are zero rated for VAT, and I believe they treated part of the membership fee as covering the purchase of the zero VAT publication. I don't know if they managed to get a tax reduction out of this, but that was the explanation the RSGB gave at the time.
