Contact very helpful. However, to see in the club magazine that you are doing a price for club members at £99.99 and told that finished the month before renewal and the price is up 50% somewhat disappointing!! Manged to negotiate a small discount. However, after 25 years with Anon/FJ without a claim, well!!!!!
