  • Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
  • Bank Branch Direct Transfer
  • Cheque
  • Cash

* Purchases at the Bar and the Kitchen Servery, and payment of League Match fees, remain 'cash-only'.

Each payment method has its own procedure/details to be followed. Each individual payment is to be accompanied by 'payment advice' information, whose details may differ according to payment method or option within it.

Payment by 'Bank branch direct transfer'

  • A Member may visit any branch of their own bank and make an over-the-counter request for their bank to process a ‘direct transfer payment’ from their account into the Club’s account.
    • Some Banks may also offer this option via their Telephone Banking service
  • A two-step process, summarised as:
    • Have the transfer performed by the Member's bank's branch
      • Account information, and other details, are contained in the password-protected 'Bank branch direct transfer request' procedure document below.
    • E-mail a 'payment advice' to the Treasurer

  • Please see below for procedure details for making a Bank branch direct transfer payment.

Payment by Cheque

  • Key point: payee must be 'Crofton Bowling Club', all of which must be written within the space defined, in the first line of the cheque
    • Banks now operate a strict policy for cheque acceptance regarding accuracy of account name as the payee on a cheque. Correspondingly, other potentially similar payee names (such as 'Crofton BC', 'Crofton Bowls Club') will continue to be rejected by the bank, thus rendering such a cheque void. In this circumstance, the cheque would be returned as 'refer-to-drawer', with potential charges to the cheque payer, and the club would deem the situation as 'no payment received'.
  • Please see below for procedure details for payment by cheque.

Payment in Cash

  • Do not mail cash
  • The only £10 or £5 notes now accepted are the polymer ones
    • the previous linen/paper £10 & £5 notes are no longer legal tender
  • Please see below for procedure details for submitting cash

The procedure for each type of payment is provided below. Click/tap the appropriate payment method document for details.

Each of the below 'payment procedure' documents is password-protected. Members requiring a password reminder should contact the Assistant Secretary.

Information for external organisations making a payment to the Club is separately available here.
