If you’d prefer to pay via cash or cheque (made payable to Harrogate Harriers & A.C), then please let us know and we can accommodate this. You should hand your cash or cheque to a Committee Member and ensure that the Membership Secretary is informed so that they can add your manual payment to our systems.
