Important – Next Steps!

Upon our receipt of your completed application form and the appropriate payment, we will post your welcome pack, which will include a membership card that will be valid until 31st December in the year in which you join (or, in the case of a Gift membership for 12 months from the date of payment). We will also email you a sign-up form, which will enable you to subscribe to the digital newsletters that we circulate via Mailchimp. Renewal of your membership will take place annually on 1st January.

1. Set up and process your preferred payment by Direct Debit, Standing Order or BACS transfer

We encourage you to set up your initial membership subscription and subsequent renewals by Direct Debit as it minimises administration time and helps keep memberships costs down.

New members should download and complete our Direct Debit mandate form and return to it by email to: membership@cornwallgardensociety.org.uk or by post to:

Membership Secretary
Cornwall Garden Society
Charnwood, Burnthouse
St Gluvias, Penryn
Cornwall TR10 9AS

We will write to you each December to remind you that we will be collecting your annual membership subscription on 1st January by Direct Debit unless you instruct us not to do so.

If you elect to pay your membership subscription and renewals by Standing Order or BACS transfer, our bank account details are:

Cornwall Garden Society
Barclays Bank Sort Code: 20-87-94
Account Number: 30286354

If paying by either of these methods, please also add ‘CGS NEW’ and your surname as a reference.

2. Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer or in receipt of a personal pension, we can claim up to 28p for every pound of your subscription from the Government. It will cost you nothing and provides the Cornwall Garden Society with additional revenue to help fulfil our charitable objectives.

Please support us by signing up for Gift Aid. You can do this by downloading, completing, signing and returning this Gift Aid declaration form by email to membership@cornwallgardensociety.org.uk or by post to:
