Normally, Paypal payments can be made to or online via the "Add to cart" links below (see also our Help page for joining online). However, at 31 August 2021 we are experiencing problems with Paypal and cannot currently accept payments via Paypal. You can still join via the "Add to cart" button below but you will need to arrange an alternative payment via our bank account. We hope that Paypal will be able to resolve this issue soon and we will update this page when we can.

Note that if you use the buttons below to "Add to cart" you will get taken back to the top of the page, where you will see a green box that contains a link to "your cart" - click on that link to proceed to checkout.
