(No meetings between terms and a break for half term)

Membership entitles you to come to the AGM (March), events and field trips,
whereby you will be covered by the Society's Insurance Policy.
This is payable at the time of joining and the fee is £10.

Before joining you may visit up to three times (Monday evenings, term time only) free of charge
to talk to Members and see Members using the machinery etc. before making a decision to join.

This annual room hire fee entitles you to visit the club meeting room for the appropriate number of Monday evening meetings, where you can use the machines (following appropriate guidelines)

You must pay both Membership (£10) and Room Fee (£75), Total - £85, before making use of the any of the machinery.

There are two options for 2019:
