The Benefits of Membership
The more members we have, the stronger our voice in fighting unwelcome change to this attractive area and in influencing the Council and other authorities to make a positive difference. As a member, you get:
•Local news updates by email (approximately monthly) plus an annual printed newsletter
•Access to this dedicated website offering news, events, and links to other useful websites.
You also have two or three opportunities a year to meet your neighbours, with free refreshments:
•A Spring get-together, where you can meet your MP, local councillors and local police representatives to hear about and discuss local issues
•An informal drinks gathering in November at the Rushmere Pub (on the Ridgway)
•Weather permitting, an outdoor drinks do in Summer.
All for just £3.00 a year per household.
Members currently pay their annual £3.00 subscription by Standing Order or cash. We are now introducing (Autumn 2023) a Direct Debit system for all new members, and for any existing members who pay by cash but would like to switch to this more convenient and secure method of payment.
Our Direct Debit system is operated by GoCardless, the reputable Direct Debit platform used by many other respected organisations. Your subscription will be debited annually on the last day of January. GoCardless will e-mail you before any payment is due, so you know when and how much will be debited each year.
If you are joining SRRA as a new member, welcome. You can set up your annual subscription now by clicking on the link below. You will be directed to the secure GoCardless website, where you will be able to enter your payment details. Please note that:
•By giving your email address you are consenting to receiving our e-Newsletters.
•SRRA will only use your contact details for our membership records and for staying in touch with you. We will never pass them on to third parties without your permission.
Once you have set up your subscription we will make sure you start to receive all your membership benefits and we look forward to meeting you at one of our social events.
If you currently pay your subscription by cash, you will be asked by your Road Representative during Autumn 2023 whether you would like to switch to our more convenient and secure Direct Debit system. If so, they will tell you how to switch.
If you currently pay by Standing Order, you need to do nothing now. We will let you know during 2024 how you too can switch to Direct Debit if you would like to.
