We're approaching the forum's 11th birthday.

I am sure it must be longer than 11 years.

Before I retired my business was a regular financial supporter for the forum when run by Craig Ollerton.

Nevertheless, Ian, please include me as a donor.

I too was an original member when Craig Ollerton ran it. Can't remember how long ago, but it seems ages.

I was also a member back then. I seem to think it went back to about 2007/8, at least that was about when I first discovered it online.

I remember meeting you there for the first time at the King's Head and it seems many years ago but I can't remember how long ago that was

Thank you all very much for the whole hearted response. I’m humbled you feel the forum is worth maintaining and that you all think so much of it.

In the next few days I’ll create a new topic which only those who have promised to contribute will be able to access. To facilitate this your member groups will change. You will see the new group appear in a new board. ‘Forum Central’ and ‘The Local’ are examples of boards and although the new board will appear on your screen it won’t elsewhere.  On the new board we’ll be able to  discuss things relevant to the forum and other issues.

Over the next few days you will also notice that you have more 'powers'; you will be able to change things by yourself. Please be careful when making any changes, as they can affect areas of the forum you might not intend them to.

Again, my sincere thanks for what you’ve said and the response in general.

Evenin all

I don't get to the forum as much as i should, but I go back to the Craig O days.

If it's not too late, count me in for a tenner.

Life would not be the same if this forum was not here. And I agree - FB pages just don't do it for me!

How do I do it, Ian?

I've been trying to set up a community bank account for the three towns, but it's proving trickier than I anticipated. So, I ave a favour to ask:

does anyone have a business account that could be used to collect contributions towards the forum costs? The reason I ask about a business account is that it should contain no personally recognisable details.

If not, I can probably arrange something through a pal who's a chartered accountant. If you do have such an account and would be prepared to allow members to pay in once a year can you let me know on this email address:

Gersonalk@protonmail.com

or use the PM system to send me a message.  The 19th is fast approaching, so iuf time does run out I will ensure we don't end things by default and pay the costs until we can get an account running,

Sorry but I can't help you there Ian as I don't do any form of internet banking.     I can pay by cash though and can arrange for it to be hand delivered where ever is convenient for you.
Please send a PM if you need to

Okay. All the information regarding the payment is in the annual payment topic.

Sorry, only just saw this! I have been a member for some time, although I don't post (This is my first!) But I visit often & enjoy reading the comments. I would be more than happy to chip in too!
