Your application will then be reviewed, and you will be notified when your application has been successful.

1. All applications last 12 months from the date of acceptance as a new member, when renewal is then due.
2. Meetings are currently being held virtually using Zoom, but will return to being held in person at Bredhurst Village Hall at some point, when it is safe to do so.

Renewing your membership

To renew, members should respond to the email they will be sent in the month prior to their renewal date, and follow instructions there, ideally before renewal is due. If a member fails to renew and submit their fee before the renewal date, their membership will lapse and they will be treated as a visitor, and will be expected to pay the visitor fee when attending any meetings until they submit their full membership fee.

If a member wishing to renew cannot locate their reminder emails, the please contact us at

Life Members are not required to pay an annual fee, however, a donation is always welcome.
