Postal Region Explained

Your Postal Region? During 2017 the Society reviewed the cost of international postage. In some cases, the additional postage to send Paddle Wheels outside the United Kingdom takes almost all of an annual subscription. Spending charity funds to subsidise postage costs is not acceptable. Therefore, we have reluctantly decided that members living outside the United Kingdom will in future need to pay a Postage Supplement to pay for the additional postage. We would emphasise that this merely represents the difference between the domestic and international postage costs.

If you are not in the United Kingdom please choose your membership option from above, ensuring you choose ‘Europe, USA & Canada and Rest of the World’ and this will add the required postage to your membership order.
