Welcome to the new BAS website!

BAS switched to a new online website in March allowing members renew, register and pay for membership online. This will vastly simplify the administration required by our volunteers to replace the time consuming process of completing and sending membership and standing order forms.

There are still some members that are paying at the old rate which means they you won't be able to access the website and register for BAS events.  If you are one of these people, then PLEASE follow the instructions you will find HERE.

Alternatively, if you are new to BAS and wish to join, then please click HERE
