HVRC EMAILS – look out for them in your Junk email
Some people have mentioned that they are not receiving emails from HVRC. Bob and Kath recently(ish) changed their email address (see here) so please ensure you check your Junk Email for HVRC related emails, and add the email address to your safe senders list (or add the email to your address book). If, on the other hand, you are receiving emails and don’t want to – just reply to the email and let Bob or Kath know that you wish to be removed from the email list.

Just a reminder that all clinics are for members only and memberships need to be paid before riders can attend clinics in 2018. The membership form is attached and can be sent in with your cheque.
