Visitors are allowed to come to two meetings before applying for membership. There are two elements to consider, the annual fee and a separate fee for each session attended.
Annual membership runs from October to September. If you join before the end of March you are liable for the full fee; from April 1st new members pay half the annual rate. The annual fee is non-refundable. The current annual membership fee is £35, about half of which covers membership of the AWGB, the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain. Junior membership is £18 and there are reduced rates for family memberships.
The session fee is £2.50, including tea and coffee. Visitors are charged £5 when there are visiting demonstartors and spaces are limited.
There are also fees for training courses and other special events.
