Annual Reviews

Each year we now produce an 'Annual Review' for Friends and Members, which incorporates a summary of our formal Year-end Report, plus what we hope are some interesting highlights of the year in question.

Car stickers validity changes

We first issued self-cling car windscreen stickers to all paid up subscribers in 2016, and have been issuing annual stickers since then. Last year we switched to a sticker that was intended to cover our Financial year from April to March, i.e. 2018-19 and then 2019-20.

This red '2018-19' car sticker expired in March 2019.

If you are still displaying one of these, then please get in touch to renew your subscripton.


The blue '2019-20' car sticker will be valid until the end of April 2020.

If you have one of these, make sure that you have received a replacement by March 2020 - and if not, then make sure you have paid to renew!

New 'Month of Expiry' stickers from May 2019

Since Friends and Members pay their subscriptions on a rolling basis throughout the year, (with due dates spread across all months of the year) the one-style-for-all sticker has caused some confusion!  So to clear things up, as of May 2019 we will be issuing all new and existing Friends with a sticker (or two stickers for those Family subscribers who want two) that shows an expiry date at the end of the relevant month - i.e. when their subscription is next due.

For anyone who pays by Direct Debit or by Standing Order, it will show an expiry for the month after their annual payment is expected; this enables us to review those payments received each month and then send out replacement stickers the following month.

For those who do not have a repeating annual payment set up, we will issue a sticker showing expiry in the month of the anniversary of their first becoming a Friend. We hope this will then serve as a very handy reminder of when their next payment will be due to us, and if it increases the number of pro-active renewal payments received, that will help to keep our admin costs low, as we always strive to do.

Old Newsletters

Up until 2011 we produced a twice-yearly Newsletter, and you can still download copies of some of these here:

In 2011 the re-designed website was launched, and so the decision was taken to stop producing these Newsletters, and instead to use this website as the main means of communication for news and articles of interest.

This move away from a regular Newsletter meant that more of the Members' and Friends' subscriptions could be spent directly on the costs of upkeep and husbandry on the Down.

We would love every regular visitor to Magog Down to help support its upkeep by becoming a Friend. Read more on our Join Us page, and then complete the application form.
