I had the same issue last night. It seems to be impossible to alter the amount which is set by the Society. I was in a hurry so ended up just subscribing as normal as I like to get my subscription in immediately once I receive the notification. :?

Yes, I decided to just pay it too.


Same happened to me last year when I renewed. :(

I've only scanned through this thread so may have missed it but any chance that the publishers would be interested in publishing the society and the journal in the back of future print runs? Given the help that Tony has been over the years I'm sure it is deserved.

yes, I suggested this (in another Journal thread I think) - but it went down like a lead balloon, lol! ;-)

I think we discussed this in the past and it was pointed out that the Enid Blyton Society and Journal are aimed at adult collectors/enthusiasts whereas the books are published for children.

Yes, I think that's true. Its a good idea, but would target children rather than adults. :-(
