The society is currently trying to streamline its systems to make it easier to send out reminders and to make payment of subs much simpler. This helps keep our costs down.  Reminders will be sent from our new email  Please put it into your contacts book, so that reminders don’t bounce back.  

You will also be able to pay your subs straight into our bank account if you use internet banking.  When you get a reminder just pay the sum requested directly into our bank account, using your full name (including first and surname) as a reference. For those of you that don’t have access to internet banking or who prefer to pay directly, the old channels remain in place. 

Our bank details are as follows:

Account Number 64226026

Many thanks for your help with this, it means we can spend less time on administration and more time on the things that really matter to Cookham.
