We now offer a standing order service for these covers.

You can subscribe to get any of our England, Scotland, N.Ireland, Wales or New Definitives covers sent to you automatically. This generally only happens once a year. We call this a standing order service rather than a club because you will not get advance notice about the covers. We will just send them along when they are ready (usually each April).
