NMTF membership extended
by three months

On Tuesday you received a message from the NMTF’s National President Michael Nicholson thanking you for retaining your membership in these particularly trying and stressful times.

Now we are giving you a bit of good news — the Executive Board has decided that if you renew without any lapse in your membership at any time during 2020 your membership will be AUTOMATICALLY extended by three months.

We appreciate the hardship many of you will be going through, but rest assured that as the only trade organisation representing the interests of the UK’s retail market and street traders, events retailers and mobile caterers we are doing all we can to support you through this pandemic.

We are aware that when it comes to state aid many of you will not qualify for grants because your business falls outside the Small Business Rates Relief category. We think this is wrong, and we support a parliamentary petition calling on the Government to rectify this anomaly.

To sign the petition click here.

Please bear in mind we are not a multi-million-pound organisation. We are a not-for-profit limited company that has not made a surplus for quite a number of years. The revenue we get from you, the members, is spent entirely for the benefit of you all.

Extending your membership will be at considerable cost but we feel it to be worthwhile to help you through this terrible period, which we all hope will end soon.

If you have any questions please email

Take care and keep safe.
