Refund policy (Steve)
A couple of members have recently asked for refunds (one claims to have mistakenly signed up as an individual member but meant to sign up as a student, another who signed up as an individual and and doesn't want the membership any more). I am inclined to tell people that they're under no obligation to renew, but that we won't refund memberships once paid for. But we should decide on our refund policy and publish it.
