How to join
New members can download a Membership Application form from the website or join online. Once completed please return the form to the Membership Secretary who will post out your membership pack once the application has been processed.
We have introduced both online membership renewals for convenience and EPOS (electronic point of sale) over the counter. This approach reduces staff time devoted to administration and gives you oversight and control of the information that we hold about you.
