Please note the following definition for Unwaged Membership:

There are occasions when members may suffer financial hardship due to unemployment, illness or parental leave etc; or if they are in receipt of means tested benefits (including Universal Credit), it is at these times that Unwaged Membership is available on a case-by-case basis for one year (after which it can be renewed). We reserve the right to ask for proof of eligibility.

The following definition applies for Full Time student membership:

Full-time education means you are studying at a recognised place of education such as a school, college, university, or in a similar setting such as home education (linked to a ‘full time’ course). For a course to be considered ‘full-time':

  • you must attend for at least 24 weeks in an academic (or calendar) year and
  • the course requires you to undertake periods of study, tuition or work experience which together amount to an average of 21 hours per week.

All those between the ages of 18-20 are eligible for the Full Time Student membership rate, even if they are not students.

Remember that the club is run by volunteers so you may have to wait up to 28 days before your new card (and voucher if appropriate) arrives.

If you want more information, you can email the information helpline or contact a member of the Committee.
