I’m afraid it’s that time of the year again and your PE and Club membership subscriptions for the new 2021 season are now due.
Members should have received email notifications from Petanque England (PE) about both sets of subscriptions, which total £43.00 per person this year.
Charges are as follows:
PE – £25.00
CoBPC – £18.00 for full members (and a bargain at twice the price!)
Please note that although there has been an increase in PE fees this year, there is no GWR regional precept payable.
As you will have seen from the latest PE email, their committee recognises the concerns of members that they are being asked to renew subscriptions now when the latest COVID restrictions has suspended our sport and this situation is likely to continue until mid to late March 2021.
Our Club is of course in a similar position to PE in that we too have fixed costs to be paid. In a normal year we are able to generate additional income from competitions and various fund raising activities, but of course this simply didn’t happen in 2020.
Our Club subscription continues to represent extremely good value for members when you consider the facilities and range of activities provided and the EC is asking members to commit to our Club and to pay their membership subscriptions now please.
Both PE and Club subscriptions should be paid via the PE’s automated on-line payment system, (loveadmin). Details on how to use this system will have been emailed to you as part of your membership renewal reminder and is replicated here. Please note this is only possible for full Club members and Associate members will have to pay their Club subscriptions separately.
The City of Bath Petanque Club is a PE affiliated Club and membership will lapse if your PE and Club memberships are not renewed by the end Jan 21. This is essential for insurance purposes and although there is no start date yet, 2020 members will be prohibited from playing in any Club sessions at LSC, or Queen Sq, until they have a valid 2021 licence – sorry!
Please contact Cary Bush if you have any membership queries or require help in using the online system.
