Members with sale material are asked to arrive from 10.00 am to set out their sale items and may drive into the car park to unload but must then move their cars to park in the street outside. Sellers are particularly asked not to commence selling before 11.00 am and other members arriving before then are asked to allow the sellers time to set up and wait until 11.00 am before buying. Members are reminded that the Society Committee has previously determined that anyone attending the Christmas Social who was not currently financial may buy but would not be allowed to sell minerals. Any members who were unsure of their current financial status should pay their subscriptions for 2024 from now on and they would then be taken as financial. Members are recommended to pay subscriptions by directdebiting only which would provide a bank record for both parties.
