The OVA last increased their membership rates in 2015. Since that time, as with everything else, inflation has taken its toll on our finances. The OVA now have to increase the membership rates to £10.00 for an individual and £15.00 for joint/household members from 1 April 2023.
It would greatly help us if you could amend your payment to the OVA prior to 1st April. If you use online banking it should be a simple matter to update the amount of your payment.
If you don't use online banking you will need to complete a standing order for the new payment, using your membership number (on the address label on the back of your newsletter) as the reference. The form must be signed and returned to the OVA, PO Box 70, Budleigh Salterton, EX9 6WN or sent to your bank. Please note the banks' require an original signature.

Another small way in which you can help us, if you haven't already done so, is to complete a Gift Aid declaration to allow the OVA to claim back the tax you have paid on your membership payment if you are a UK taxpayer.
