Annual subscription rate

The club year runs from 1 November to 31 October.
The full annual subscription for 2017-18 is £32.
If you are a member of Mountaineering Scotland this subscription can be reduced by the amount that the JMCS pays to Mountaineering Scotland - email to find out the current rate..

Prompt payment is much appreciated, and payment by mid-December is essential for you to be covered by the Mountaineering Scotland' civil liability insurance scheme.

New members:
if you join between   1 Nov - 30 Apr   you pay the full subscription;
if you join between   1 May - 31 Aug   you pay half the full subscription;
if you join between   1 Sep - 31 Oct   you pay the full subscription, but this will also cover the following year's membership (including the annual Mountaineering Scotland membership - this runs from September to August, and is the cause of this strange subscription policy).

How to pay the subscription

Various ways to pay the subscription:

(a)   pay by bank transfer (see notes below); the bank account details are:


(b)   send a cheque, payable to 'Edinburgh JMCS', to the club treasurer at the above address.

(c)   simply pay in cash to the club treasurer.

NB if you pay by bank transfer:  
(i)   please email to say that you have made a payment
(surprisingly, Bryan does not particularly enjoy reading the JMCS monthly bank statements, and if you don't email it is conceivable he won't notice the payment!);
(ii)   if you get the option, please put your name as a 'reference' for the payment
(sometimes the transaction on the bank statement just reads something like 'AC 123456789', which makes it difficult to know who the payment is from!);
(iii)   please don't use the above bank details for other payments.
In particular, hut fees payments should go to the hut custodian - this makes it much easier for both the custodians and the treasurer to keep track of what is going on
(and Bryan needs all the help he can get).
