Membership is open to all – to everyone who shares our aim to make our City attractive for residents and visitors. Whether you would like to be an active member, or simply remain in the background, we value your support. Membership entitles you to regular lively meetings, a quarterly newsletter, regular email updates, visits to other towns and cities and – above all – a chance to be involved in how our city and its green spaces prosper.
The Society’s subscription year runs from 1 April, though new members are welcome to join at any time. Those joining after 31 January are offered free membership until 31 March of the same year but should supply their payment details (see below) with their membership registration.
How to join
To register as a member, please email* the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org

Subscriptions are best paid by Standing Order. The SO can be cancelled at any time though no refunds are offered for cancellation after the start of the subscription year.
Annual BACS payments are also acceptable using the same bank details.
Cheque payments can be accepted but our bank now levies a charge for each cheque paid into the Society’s account. For this reason we would much prefer payment by Standing Order or via BACS.
