All in TVP
My FAC & SGC are due for renewal mid-December, so being the good boy that I am submitted the renewal forms back in September.
Speaking the now retired Mike Broadhurst in August, the flood in Kidlington put them back quite a bit - at one point it was 6 months - but I'm pleased say that having just spoken to them, it's now "a few weeks", so they are anticipating getting the new certificates back to me by the end of Jan.
TVP - in their infinite wisdom - force us to return the existing certificates with the renewal/variation forms, but as I pointed out just now, I can't buy any ammo on a photocopy...
My current, and still valid, certificates are therefore heading back in today's post.
In mid-December a Section 7 Licence will be sent to cover me for the kit in my cabinet and will allow me to buy cartridges until the new certificates rock up, so in anticipation I'm going to stock up with centre fire ammo as January could easily morph into February.
I'll report back as this all progresses, but at least it's not as bad as it was, and the moral is you clearly do NOT need to send your current certificates back with the forms
