LURS    London Underground Railway Society

2018 Membership Renewal

We invite you once again to renew your subscription to The London Underground Railway Society.

Due to increases in postal costs, the subscription rates for 2018 will be £34 for UK based Members, £52 for European based Members and £62 for Members based in the Rest of the World. This is the first increase in subscription rates since 2015.

The Society separates Membership by geographical region into United Kingdom Membership, Europe Membership and Rest of World Membership, due to the annual cost incurred in mailing Underground News to different parts of the world.

The label on the envelope containing Underground News has a code of airEU or airE0 for European Membership and either air1 or air2 for Rest of World Membership on the top line.

Royal Mail definitions of what constitutes Europe and Rest of World (combined World Zone 1 and World Zone 2) can be found here Links to the Royal Mail website in a separate tab. .

Binders for your 2017 editions of UNDERGROUND NEWS can be ordered at the same time as your Membership renewal. The cost of these remains at GBP10.00 (£ 10.00) and will be despatched around April 2018.

We are able to accept payment by direct transfer from PayPal and also use that company to process Credit/Debit Card payments.

In view of this enhancement, we strongly insist that you DO NOT send cash to renew your Membership, as we are unable to take responsibility for any loss in transit.

Please Note: Your Subscription MUST be renewed prior to 8th December 2017 in order that you can receive the January 2018 issue of Underground News. Any Subscriptions renewed after this date will NOT automatically receive missed editions; these must be requested in writing and will incur a surcharge of GBP1 (£1) per copy to cover the cost of additional postage, packing and administration.

Your subscription covers the costs involved in producing and distributing UNDERGROUND NEWS each month as well as providing a monthly meeting in Central London, for those that are able to attend.

Any additional items; such as visits or special Supplements to UNDERGROUND NEWS, are provided from Society funds.

We therefore welcome and appreciate any additional donations that Members feel able to make.

Donations may be made by any of the methods listed below.

In the case of donations via PayPal , please use the Donate button at the bottom of this page.
