  9.

We are incredibly grateful for all of the constructive criticism and positive feedback that we have received over the past few months, and we are eager to continue with this open channel of communication moving forward. As the end of the first year approaches, so does the end of many of your memberships. As a thank you for your continued loyalty while we work on improving the current club, we would like to offer you the option to extend your Airfix membership until 31st August 2021, completely free of charge. If this is something you would like to do, we will automatically renew your membership within the next few days, so you do not have to do anything!
