Become a member

If you support the aims of the Society we would be delighted to welcome you as a member.

Members are not only welcome from the Amersham area, but also those who have been associated with Amersham personally or through their family connections.

The minimum subscription is only £11.50 (or £17 for two members of one family at the same address) due on the 1st January each year. To reduce the administrative details, it is very helpful to receive your payment by direct debit, using the downloadable form below. Otherwise payment can be made by cheque payable to The Amersham Society. We also hope you will allow us to benefit from Gift Aid where this is possible.
