  2. Then set up your payment via your bank: a yearly standing order on 1st October to Lloyds TSB, 30-12-80, account 01082548 Manx Bat Group for the relevant fee (ie £10 / £7.50 / £4).
  3. Please remember to include your name as a reference.
  4. Your membership fee will be paid automatically each year at your renewal date unless you cancel via your bank.

One year by bank transfer

One year by cheque or cash
