    Email Permissions

    A printed list of members’ addresses is produced in the Bulletin, together with members’ email addresses where we have permission. This list is not published on the Internet.

    We only use phone numbers as emergency contacts, when other methods of communication have failed. We do not publish the phone numbers of members unless they are officers of the Society, or request us to do so (e.g. Fern Nurseries).

    Are you a UK tax payer? If yes then please take a few minutes to complete this form.
    Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, the BPS receives an extra 25 pence from the Inland Revenue, helping your subscription go further.
    The following table tells you what the BPS can get from the Inland Revenue as long as subscriptions are made through Gift Aid.
    Full members £6.25
    Members not taking Fern Gazette £5.25
    Family members additional payment £0.62
    Students £3.12
    Imagine what a difference that could make, and it does not cost you a thing.
    So if you want your subscription to go further, Gift Aid it. Just complete this form and submit it. It’s as simple as that!

    I want all subscriptions I’ve made since 6 April 2002 and all subscriptions in the future to be Gift Aid until I notify you otherwise

    To qualify for Gift Aid, what you pay in income tax or capital gains tax must at least equal the amount we will claim in the tax year.
    Please note no Gift Aid can be claimed if your subscription to the Society is claimed against tax.
    Please note that it is not necessary to fill in a Gift Aid form every year – these forms are retained by the Gift Aid Secretary and used year after year.
