The current membership year started on 30th June 2019. Due to COVID-19 memberships are extended and will not expire until further notice.
The standard procedure is that if you are a member you will receive a renewal form in the post during June. All you have to do to renew your membership is return your completed form to the club together with the correct fee and retain your personalised Membership Discount Card which will be recharged when you next visit the club.
2019-2020 renewals under 65 years were £30 – 65 years and over £15 – no change from the previous year.
If you do not renew your membership, your Discount Card will expire at the end of June.
After the deadline for renewals your membership will be deemed to have lapsed, but please retain your Discount Card if you wish to re-apply.
Applications for club membership will be open from 20th May 2021. Please come along and collect a form from the Club. To complete your application you will need a proposer and a seconder – Club members will be happy to help with this.
New Members under 65 the fee is £65 in total (£35 one-off registration fee + £30 subscription).
New Members aged 65 or over the fee is £35 in total (£20 one-off registration fee + £15 subscription).
Note that Members renewing the following year pay only the subscription fee.
Members benefit from reduced drinks prices at all times and free or discounted entry to many music events. Please remember to bring your personalised Member’s Discount Card with you. There is also a Concessionary rate for the Comedy Club on the first Thursday of every month.
Remember members also benefit from being able to hire the function room for parties and fundraising events. For more details go to the Home Page and click on the ‘Function Room’ button. To enquire email functions [AT] lewesconclub [DOT] com
MEMBERS DISCOUNT CARD
The Members Discount Scheme means that all members receive the benefit of their membership fees by paying reduced prices at the bar.
Your Membership Discount Card will be available for collection from the Club, your unique personalised card will be activated at the till and you will be able to use it immediately to purchase drinks at members’ discounted prices. The Club is committed to keeping members’ prices down for as long as possible, whilst non members will pay higher prices, comparable to a commercial pub rate in Lewes. You can use your Card to pay for drinks for your guests, but the general rule for non-members is: ‘If you want the discount – please join the Club’. Your Card will cease to function on the expiry date of June 24th unless you renew your membership – so Keep Your Card – and come to the Club to re-activate it at the till for another membership year.
Q. How do I use it?
A. When your order drinks at the bar it is important that you Show Your Card First, then your card will be swiped at the till and you will be charged at the lower Membership rate for your drinks.
Q. What else can it do?
A. It is possible to use the card instead of cash. It is not a credit or debit bank card, but it could be loaded at the bar, say for example with £50. The card could then be used at the bar instead of paying by cash, a receipt is provided by the till after every transaction showing a running total of how much money is left on the card.
Q. How long does the card last for?
A. The card will cease to function on 24th June each year unless you renew your membership. When you renew your membership the card will be re-activated for the next membership year. So please Do Not Throw Your Card Away.
Q. Supposing I lose my card?
A. Let the club know immediately if you have lost your card. It can then be de-activated at the till so nobody can use it. The club reserves the right to ask for a small fee of a few pounds to provide a replacement card to cover the costs.
