UBKA insists that all members of RVBKA have their insurance and affiliation fees paid by 1st January 2018.  With this in mind can you please pay your membership (£20 for individual membership or £25 for family membership) by November 2017 as there is no meeting in December.  The insurance runs from 1st January 2018 to 31st December 2018.  Please be aware that if you don't  pay your membership you won't be insured.  Our treasurer, David Logue, will be in attendance at the November meeting if you wish to pay him then.  If this isn't suitable can you please post David a cheque made out to RVBKA  to his address at 90 Tartnakilly Road, Limavady, BT49 9NA by the end of November.  If you are taking out family membership David needs to know the exact details of the second person.

The stained glass image used as our logo is from a Canadian Stained glass company called Light Romance, onto which has been laid the RVBKA title.         In March '08 their Director wrote: Hi Alan. We will be honoured if you use our stained glass honeybee on your website.  Cheers, Larry @ Light Romance.
