Membership

In addition to being part of a thriving Society with a knowledgeable Membership with whom you can exchange views, discuss ideas and problems, as a Member you also receive the following benefits:

 

  • Society members have access to the Society's shop which supplies track parts and other items at preferential prices

 

  • The Society publishes a quarterly Newsletter that includes articles, letters, items for sale, illustrations and colour photographs of garden get-togethers, locomotives and rolling stock. The Newsletter is published in December, March, June and September. Members joining after April 1st are entitled to two editions of the Newsletter in the first year of membership.

 

  • Many members believe that the main benefit of membership is the ability to meet and exchange views with other G3 enthusiasts and our garden get-togethers (and AGM) represent excellent opportunities to gather ideas, exchange views, ask questions and discover how others have tackled similar problems. However, some members also appear to gain great satisfaction just watching the trains run past! Ÿ

 

  • An invitation to the Society's regular Get-Togethers and an invitation to attend the Society's AGM & Exhibition

 

  • A vote at the AGM and the right to stand for election to become an officer / committee member of the Society

 

Membership of the Society is renewable on an annual basis, the membership year running from the 1st January to the 31st December.  Current membership subscription fees are included on the membership form.

 

Members are entered in the Register of Members of the company and are required to provide a guarantee of One Pound Sterling, in accordance with the Articles of Association of the company, said guarantee being required (under the provision of the Companies Act 2006) to continue in effect for twelve months after cessation of membership.
