Membership Details

Membership Details Season 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2022

Ordinary and Non-Voting Membership is available on payment of a joining fee and annual subscription. For all new members the first year is a probationary period. There are concessions for Registered Disabled, Students, Juniors, Families, State Pensioners and Partners. When partners and/ or children of an adult member join there is no requirement for an extra joining fee.

Partners of State Pensioners do not pay an entrance fee, but a subscription fee will be due for both partners and a photo of each will be required.

Membership for children under the age of 12 is free, Junior members aged 12-14 must also be accompanied by a fully paid-up adult member. Members aged 16 and over may night fish and may also use a third rod on Stonar, Fordwich, Trenley and Stour Lakes on payment of an additional subscription.  

Most car parks are gated and locked at all times and a small charge is made for keys. There is an extra gated car park for disabled members and those of 70 years of age and over on the Fordwich complex. Special keys are available only on production of a “Blue Badge” or proof of age   All Members are provided with a car park permit which must be displayed when parked in Association car parks.

Applications for “new” memberships can only be made by post, with a completed application form and a cheque for the appropriate amount. A passport style photo is also required so that an ID card and rule book can be provided.  Proof of Residency will also be required for new members, in the form of a Utility Bill/s or Driving Licence (photocopies are acceptable).

Payments for renewal of membership can also be made by phoning Headquarters during office hours. Callers’ will require a Credit or Debit Card. Membership may be deferred by advanced payment of a retaining fee of £20. Future membership can be resumed on payment of the current annual subscription.  Whilst the pandemic continues members may not visit HQ.
Fishing on Fordwich Lake is only available to Local Members, defined as those living within the areas CT1 to 21, ME13 and TN25 postcodes.

All members, with the exception of children under 13, must be in possession of a valid Environment Agency Rod Fishing Licence. Juniors age 13-16 will need a junior rod licence and these are available from the EA free of charge. Rod Licences are available from the Environment Agency by direct debit, at Post Offices and online but beware of sites other than the Post Office as they charge a large handling fee.
