When joining the Society as a member or a member plus (below) you must be recommended by a current member. However it is possible to become a provisional member for a year before full membership. Please ask the secretary for details of provisional membership, and for any further information you may need. We do not issue a membership list.

Member plus

Annual subscription: £70 reduced to £65 if paid by standing order
This category is the same as above, except that such a member may be accompanied by another designated person within his or her family (broadly interpreted) at all the Society's meetings and visits. The name of such other person must be recorded with the Secretary. You will receive one set of mailings (Journal and Newsletter).   Membership application form and Gift Aid Form
