Terms and Conditions

1. Paid voting membership is only available to individuals who are aged 16 and over.  We have requested your date of birth to ensure that we are processing voting memberships correctly.

2. Each member will receive one share only of £1 and will be entitled to one vote per resolution raised at any general meeting. The share issued to the member is not transferable to any other person, firm or corporate body.  (For joint household applications (2 adults),  one share certificate will be issued and each member will have been allocated one share of £1 each and both will be entitled to vote).

Contributions made (whether in the form of the annual subscription or donations of money) are not a financial investment, and cannot be refunded to the member once the transfer has been made.

4. As a non-profit making organisation, no financial return, whether in the form of interest or a distribution of profits, will be made to its members.

7. This data will be transferred to electronic media such as an online membership database and your email address may be added to online email marketing tools to enable us to send you communications efficiently. As defined in the Rules of the Trust, prescribed data on members will be publicly available at the Trust’s registered office.
