Taken from all the club’s recent newsletters:
It is VERY IMPORTANT that you carry your Ogston Membership Card with you at all times when visiting both the Ogston and Jim Mart reserves.
Members should never reveal the lock number to non members and please remember that non-members on site are not covered by Public Indemnity insurance.
If you want to see older posts that no longer show on the page you’re reading, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the “Older Posts” wording. A really good feature on the new website is that posts automatically get stored in the site’s archives. We no longer have to delete them.
Although the new site has been only running for a few months, posts from the last year have been added and are available should you want to view them.
As per the recent Ogston Bird Club newsletter, can we remind all members that as of this year, the gate lock numbers were changed in the first weekend of February 2014.
NOT MAY as in previous years.
Please note, membership renewal will take 7 to 10 days during January, so can you please ensure that you get your membership renewal forms to the Membership Secretary as early as possible. This will allow him chance to process them and allow you continued access to both the Ogston and Jim Mart reserves.
Copies of the 2014 membership renewal forms are attached to the latest Ogston newsletter e-mail. If you haven’t received your copy of the December newsletter, please contact the club’s Publicity Officer, Steve Slack by E-mail
