Membership auto-renewal – fix applied
A software fix was applied at the weekend which should have stopped the problem some members were experiencing, whereby they were forced to set up their club account as an automatic annually-renewing membership. We are now working our way through all membership records to un-apply any auto-renewing, which we are doing on an individual member […]
Sporadic issues with PayPal (updated)
It has been brought to our attention that a very small number of club members are experiencing problems paying for their Fanderson membership, merchandise or services.

Supercelebration – what a weekend!
Anderson fans flocked to the Holiday Inn Maidenhead last weekend to mark the 50th anniversary of The Secret Service, Doppelgänger and UFO and to raise money for charity The Silver Line, a free 24-hour helpline for older people.
