STAT Subscriptions Payment Policy

The deadline for subscription renewals is the last day of February of each year. This deadline applies to all types of membership. 

Invoices and statements for fees covering the new membership year are sent out before Christmas and the holiday period. This allows a period of over two months for you to either settle in full, contact us with payment and instalment method details or inform us of any changes in your circumstances.

If you do not pay before the deadline, the STAT office will not lapse your membership immediately. We will make contact to remind you of the non-payment and to find out if you wish to continue receiving the benefits of your subscription.

Please note that in the event that you wish to terminate your membership and you notify us after the end of February deadline, you will be requested to cover the cost of your membership up until the date you notified us.

Your membership will be lapsed if we receive no response within 10 days following our letter/email notifying you of our intention to lapse your membership. It is vital that membership fees are paid within the due period to keep administration costs to a minimum and membership fees at a reasonable level. We offer a range of payment methods allowing members to select a payment plan that suits their individual needs.

Policy for other payments

We always allow a period of 30 days for payment of an invoice, other than your subscription fee. Statements will be sent detailing any outstanding amounts. In the event that we receive no payment after the 30-day period, a 5% surcharge on the invoice value may be applied for late payment. This will be added for each month that non-payment continues.

At about the age of 45, I began to experience severe pain in both of my knees. I was told I had damaged the cartilage, initially caused by the use of a kicking strap on a sailing dinghy, and made worse by many years of beagling, and to stop beagling or risk ending up in a wheelchair. A few years later a friend suggested the Alexander Technique. At first I was very sceptical, but had also reached the stage where I was ready to try virtually any means to solve the problem. A few weeks after my first lesson, I had gone out beagling, but only walking.
