Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC
This message is intended for members who wish to renew
or obtain for the first time their 'competition licence' issued by England
Athletics (EA) also known as the affiliation fee.
You may be aware that Blackheath & Bromley has delayed
requesting EA affiliation payments for the 2013/14 season pending
clarification on the recently proposed fees increase, which, at one stage,
EA was going to quadruple to £20 for most athletes. (It is not yet clear
what events you will be unable to enter if you are not affiliated or whether
other sanctions will be applied: there was talk of removing non-affiliated
athletes from Power of 10, for example.)
EA now requires an affiliation fee of £10 (previously
£5) and the club's executive committee has agreed to request payment from
its members of this sum on their behalf. In the committee's opinion, EA has
not yet fully justified the increase, but we cannot delay collecting the
fees any longer with the renewal date of 1st April 2013 approaching.
Therefore, our approach is to advise EA that funds they receive from our
Club on your behalf are subject to the Club receiving the justification that
we seek. If they fail to provide this, they must accept £5 as payment for
2013/14, with the remaining £5 held in trust towards next year's fee.
I should be grateful, therefore, if you would make
payment to me in the sum of £10 per person who wishes to be affiliated with
EA for the coming year. It may be in the form of a cheque or bank transfer.
If paying by cheque you should send it to:
Rob Brown, Membership Secretary, 40 Frankswood Avenue,
Petts Wood, Orpington, Kent, BR5 1BP.
Please make the cheque payable to Blackheath &
Bromley Harriers AC and ensure the name(s) of the member(s) to whom the
cheque relates are written on the reverse of the cheque (if it is not
obvious from the name of the drawer of the cheque).
Details for bank transfers are:
Payable to Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC
Sort code 40-05-30
Account number 51408798
If paying on-line, please make sure that your payment
makes reference to your name in order that we may identify each payment.
Payment in cash is not recommended unless handed to me
For those who have not renewed their membership
subscription due on 1st January 2013, you may wish to combine the two into a
single payment. You will find the renewal form here:
http://www.bandbhac.org.uk/membership.html - Please note that
there is a late payment fee of £10 for subscriptions paid after 1st March.
Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC
Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC now uses e-mail as a
major source of communication with its members please make sure I have your
latest e-mail address or you may miss out on important information and
Yes, this is still relevant even if
it's 14 years old!
There has been a long and fruitful collaboration
between Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC and Brunel University (Borough Road)

athletes have studied at Brunel with famous names including Peter Yates,
Phil Davies, Jamie Quarry, Mensah Elliot, Michael Skinner, Sam Bobb,
Akinola Lashore, and most recently, Samantha Singer.
Could you please let club members know via the
website that if they are competing at county standard or above and would
like to study for a BSc/MSc in Sport Sciences, they are welcome to
contact me. I am a long serving member of B&BHAC
and will be pleased to advise any prospective student who is interested
in joining one of the leading athletics institutions in the UK.
