Ways to renew

Please click here to renew safely and securely online, either by card or Direct Debit.

If you prefer to switch to Direct Debit, you can download a mandate here and post it to us at Waterston House, or send in a cheque made payable to ‘SOC’. Please remember to write your membership number on the back of the cheque (just call us if you need a reminder of this).

Our Freepost address is FREEPOST RTKC-TGJU-KZLB, SOC, Waterston House, Longniddry, EH32 0PY, however using a stamp will save us costs.

Contact Waterston House on 01875 871 330 and we can take a card payment over the phone. Please see our Getting Here and Opening Hours page for details (under About Us at the top of the page).

Pop in to see us at HQ to either set up a Direct Debit or renew by cash, cheque or card. See our Getting Here and Opening Hours page for details (under About Us at the top of the page).

Renew FAQs

If you have any queries about renewing, your bank details have changed recently, or you’re not sure when your membership is due for renewal, then please contact the office on 01875 871 330 or email

Great! Simply mention this at the time of renewing.

The tax we can claim on Gift Aid is an invaluable source of additional income for the Club. If you’re in any doubt whether your Gift Aid declaration is up to date, or you’re not sure whether you have previously signed a statement, then please contact the office and we’ll happily check our records.

Please note that we don't hold members' date of birth on file (unless a Junior). We therefore rely on members getting in touch to let us know that they've reached Pensioner age. Please email to let us know, and we will update your record from your next renewal date, including your Direct Debit amount if applicable.
