Depends on what's best for you, and what you have available!

The CD is 5 more than the fiche, before postage on the fiche, but includes Longstanton as well.

Do you have facilities to read the fiche (I use a 20x magnifying glass)

If you scratch the CD it could be a write off (I've done that) whereas fiches are relatively indestructible

I find CDs easier to use than fiche, but still prefer buying fiche.

There's no right answer. It's down to you.
