Membership and Contact



We are a self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operative for those who are retired or semi-retired, providing opportunities for our members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning not for qualifications, but for fun.

New members are always welcome. As of June 2017 our membership stood at over 800.

Our annual Membership Fee for 2017-2018 is £10 payable from September 2017. (A lower fee of £5 is payable for the summer term after Easter).

Click here to print an application form – please note that there are two pages to this form, one is for the Data Protection Act (DPA), and your application cannot be accepted unless this is completed and signed – which you can complete and send to the Membership Secretary.

We are registered with HM Revenue & Customs for Gift Aid. Members are encouraged to sign a Gift Aid form, if they are tax-payers, so we may reclaim tax on your subscriptions, to improve our finances for the benefit of us all.
