Join Us

If you would like to join the Society, please get in touch with the Membership Secretary, Malcolm Mitchell, by using the email form on the Join Us page if you have questions before being able to apply, or by completing the form below.

The annual subscription for 2020/21 is:

Single Full   £20
Single Reduced    £10
Joint Full    £30
Joint Reduced    £15

Our ‘year’ runs from April to March, so if you join ‘mid-year’ the charge is pro-rated on a monthly basis and the membership secretary will be able to let you know exactly how much to pay in response to this application, together with bank details for standing orders. We do not manage direct debits.

The reduced rate applies for students, retirees or those not in employment.
