Members benefit from a quarterly newsletter with a local history supplement, regular emails on local news and Society business and notifications for Facebook and Twitter. Members can ask for advice on planning and tree work. They can help with the work of the Society to whatever extent suits them. They are eligible to stand for the Executive Committee. The committee is elected at an Annual General Meeting at which the Accounts and an Annual Report are presented.

Please note that members from outside the newsletter delivery area will receive their newsletters by email.

Membership runs from March 1st but you can join at any time in the year either online or by post. If you join after November 1st, your membership will run until March 1st of your second year.

You can join for a single year or you can help us to reduce admin effort by joining for a number of years in advance.

Joining fees can be paid for using debit or credit card (via Paypal), Paypal or cheque. There is also the option for you to ‘Gift Aid’ your payment which means that, as a charity, we can reclaim the tax you have paid on your payment from HMRC without costing you anything further.  Donations are also welcome as part of the joining process.

If you would prefer to apply to join by post and pay by cheque, you can download a membership form here.
