We currently have 297 members. The number of members is limited by the capacity of our lecture venue.

If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact our membership secretary, Diane Gosling by email, her email address being

She will be delighted to send you a registration form to be completed and returned with a non-refundable registration fee of £10. When you become a member this registration fee will be credited towards the cost of your first year's membership.

The annual membership fee from January 2019 is £45 per member.

As of January 2019 there were 2 prospective new members on our waiting list, and it is likely that these will become members for our next new year (starting in January 2020). Our year runs from January to December. The committee has recently decided that should anyone on the waiting list decide not to take up membership when they have been invited to do so, they start again at the bottom of the list. If you are on the waiting list and you would like to know your position on it, please email Diane Gosling and she will be happy to tell you.

Sometimes, if we have spare places on visits or special interest days, we do contact prospective members on our waiting list to ask them if they would be interested in coming along.
