Joining the Nottingham Group
Membership of Nottingham Hardy Plant Society is £5 per annum but you must also be a member of the National Hardy Plant Society which is £17 per annum or £19 per annum for two people at the same address.
Your local membership includes eight meetings during the winter months (September to April at 7.30 pm on the 2nd Friday of the month) plus it is necessary to be a member if you wish to go on any of the outings which are arranged for the summer. You will receive two newsletters issued by Nottingham Group during the year. If you decide to join after we have completed our set of winter meetings, i.e. from May onwards, it is more advantageous to wait until September to join when winter meetings re-commence as your subscription will last for 16 months. The same applies for the National subscription. Please read our General Data Protection Policy (GDPR) at the bottom of this page before completing the application forms
Application forms can be downloaded from the respective websites (see links below), or you can contact our Membership secretary (see details below) and she will send them to you.
The preferred method of payment for the Nottingham Group is by
standing order (forms available below or from our membership secretary).
bank transfer (Hardy Plant Society Nottingham - Sort Code 56 00 61 - Account Number 80214819).
Whilst we still also accept cheques this is our least favourite payment method as it is administratively time consuming and, as a voluntary organisation, our resources are limited. It is also possible to join both of the Groups at our winter meetings.
