Membership

We offer a very simple membership price costing only £5.00 per household, per annum due 1st April.

We are changing our start date in 2021 to January 1st and to cover increasing costs the membership price will be £7.50 therefore 2020 fee will only cover the nine months to the end of December.

Your subscriptions are vital to the continuation of the society and cover the following expenses –

 

  • Insurance
  • RHS membership
  • Venue hire
  • Printing costs
  • Speakers
  • Expenses related to the spring and summer shows.

In order to remain financially viable we also rely on half the income from the bi annual Open Gardens event; the remainder of which is donated to a local charity suggested by someone in the village.

Those members who pay by direct debit will continue as usual this year. Any new or existing members that pay by cash/cheque should contact Sheila (membership) at Three Chimneys, or Mo (treasurer) 

Thank you for your ongoing support.
