      Hi John! Non-members day rate is £20. You will both need NCMD insurance if both digging which can be obtained online at It’s just £8 per annum. It’s unlikely you will get your cards back in time for this event but if you just print out a copy of your payment/email receipt etc.,we are happy to accept this. Hope to see you at the event..
