The Application form together with a cheque covering the first year’s subscription and entrance fee should be submitted to the Club Manager. The cheque will be cashed only upon election. (Alternatively, you can fill in a direct debit mandate or pay by BACS or Card).
  2. On receipt of the application, arrangements will be made for prospective members to meet a current Committee member. The objective of the meeting is to discuss what the applicant(s) expect from the Club and what the Club offers to ensure compatibility and to ensure that introductions can be arranged for the activities of particular interest to the applicant(s).   
  3. Details of new applications will be displayed on the Club notice board at least 14 days prior to the next General Committee Meeting when membership elections are held. The General Committee meets monthly to elect new members.
  4. Once your application has been approved by the General Committee, you will receive a letter confirming your membership along with your membership card and other club information such as the calendar, training programme, newsletter, etc.
