Becoming an AH Member is one of the best ways you can support us….. and get something back for yourself.

Part of our democratic organisation, Members are entitled to vote at the AGM. They will also receive:

  • Regular newsletters keeping them up to date with what we are doing
  • Early notification of events by email
  • Invitations to special members-only events.

We offer two schemes:

Annual £10 per year

Life, a one-off payment of £100 (a very good deal if you’re young and fit!).

Members receive a membership card.

We are continuing our Membership Discount Card scheme for 2018, which is proving very popular with old and new members alike. We are delighted to include River Cottage Canteen in this year’s partners, as well as those from 2017, including Acorn Gifts, Archway Bookshop, Axminster Printers, Sublyme Café, Trill Farm, and of course Axminster Heritage Alive.

Gifts in Wills

We know that your first priority when making a will is to provide for your loved ones, but many people find that even after they’ve done this they can leave something to a cause they hold dear. Leaving a gift in your will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support us. It costs nothing during your lifetime but will have a powerful impact for years to come. If you would like to leave a gift to Axminster Heritage we would recommend you speak to your solicitor.
