Membership Subscription Changes – IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!

So, as ever, Subs are due on 1st Jan. The fees have changed, as have the bank details, so please read below.

Many thanks to each of you who fed back with regards to the proposed fees. 20 out of 20 respondents were in favour, so we are proceeding as follows:

Single membership: £25.00

Joint membership: £35.00

(These are now the only two categories of membership)

Please pay by BACS to the following account:

NatWest Business Current Account: TTs Coppice Association (N W)

Account Number: 20809336

Sort Code: 01-00-61

Reference: Please put your name + “subs” as the reference so we know who’s paid & what you paid for!

Note: if you forget to amend your old standing order then the old fee will be collected by Cumberland BS in line with your previous instruction. Whilst we do still have access to the antiquated account, frankly I hope never to have to have anything to do with it ever again so there will likely be some delay in identifying your ‘partial’ payment and subsequent reinstatement on the membership list, followed by being hounded for the top-up fee!!!

Many thanks to those of you who have already paid for 2024 ahead of time.

Lime Kiln Wood (Grange over Sands) is for sale

A message from one of our members:

“Our Lime Kiln Wood Trust members have now taken firm decision to sell the wood and are considering the best way to divest the property to a buyer who will hopefully manage it in a sympathetic way. We are arranging for a valuation and will be looking to proceed in the new year. It would be very kind of you to alert your Coppice contacts to this opportunity to own and manage a gem of a wood. We do have a dedicated website Lime Kiln Wood | Lime Kiln Wood is a 5 hectare piece of ancient semi-natural woodland
