Existing 2020 Members

In recognition of the fact that we were not able to deliver the whole programme this year, the Garden Society Committee has decided to offer free 2021 membership to all our 2020 members.

Whatever happens regarding the current restrictions, we still have plans for talks and other events for 2021, using Zoom if our usual gatherings are prohibited, as well as ideas for live events and projects, particularly our nascent ‘gardening, growing and greening’ group whose aim is to develop and enrich our public spaces in Charlbury.

Although we will not be asking for payment for membership fees for 2021 from our 2020 members, optional donations will be most gratefully received to help us support these initiatives despite our lower income for the year. See below for details about how to make such a donation by bank transfer or cash/cheque.

Membership cards for 2021 have now been delivered to all existing 2020 members.

New Members

Annual membership costs are as follows:

  • £5 for an individual adult
  • £8 for two adults in the same household

Membership also includes children living in the same household. All members receive a Membership Card listing all the events. Members will get free admission to the talks and will receive priority on excursion coach bookings and outings.
