Membership fee is £5 a year, renewable at the AGM in September each year.  Members pay £2 at each meeting to help pay for the hall and boost funds. Visitors are always welcome at meetings and other activities for a modest £3 contribution.  Our members - numbers vary  but usually reach almost 100 by the end of our year - have access to our archives at regular intervals and are able to join our research team.  Members also receive update emails from our chairman every month and have membership cards and leaflets.

 

We all happily research the last 1000 years in Worle, live happily with our memories, enjoy the here and now and plan for the future. Such fun.
