Membership of the Friends of Aston’s Eyot costs £5/year (concessions £3), the money going towards public liability insurance for members working on site and tools such as strimmers, together with occasional hire of contractors for heavier work. Members will get regular email newsletters, invitations to events etc. and opportunities to do practical work on site. Obviously access to the Eyot is free, but maintaining and enhancing does cost money, so please join!
Subscriptions run from one Annual General Meeting (in principle late November/early December) to the next, but all those joining or rejoining in once the AGM date is announced will be have full membership through to the AGM in the following year. Anyone paying in the run-up to the AGM will not have to pay more if the subscription rate is raised at the AGM.
