Joining the Society is easy – just fill in a membership form and send it back to us at the address on the form with your payment. The minimum subscription is £10 a year for an adult member or £15 per year for two adults at the same address but we also welcome additional contributions. Children under the age of 18 can join for £3 a year.

Please enclose a payment for your first year’s membership by cheque made payable to The Selborne Society Ltd. or pay by bank transfer using the details on the form. Our membership year starts on 1st January and you will receive a reminder to renew each year but we do encourage members to set up a standing order for all future subscriptions as this helps keep down our administration work. If you have Internet Banking, it’s easy to set up a standing order or you can download a Standing Order form here and return it with your membership form.

If you are a UK taxpayer, please also fill in a Gift Aid form as this means we can claim back 25p for every £1 paid.

Our Membership

The Selborne Society has nearly 1,000 members, who support our work via their subscriptions and by coming to events and activities at the reserve. Membership benefits include receiving a copy of the Society’s newsletter three times a year and for those newsletter-free months, we email out a news round-up with details of all our events and activities. Members can visit the reserve on one of our Members’ Days, usually held several times per month, throughout the year. Junior members and their families can come to our monthly Rangers afternoon held on the second Saturday of each month (except August). You can find more details of our junior Rangers activities over on our Facebook page at
