The membership year is from June to June. Renewals will open in May and every existing member will be sent a letter inviting renewal with details and a form to complete. Renewal fees will be held at: £30 for under 65’s and £15 for 65 and over.
We will be holding a membership renewal afternoon on Sunday 25th June 2023, a good opportunity to come in to the Club and enjoy the garden and the bar. We will also have live music from The Contenders (Acoustic), plus cheese and biscuits so it’s definitely worth a visit.
If you can’t make it to the renewal afternoons then you can leave your renewal form and payment with the bar staff in an envelope clearly marked for attention of the Membership Secretary. Payment can be by cash, cheque or you can pay by debit card at the club. If you would like to pay directly to the Club bank then please contact the membership secretary for our bank details. You can also post your form back to us.
Please retain your personalised Membership Discount Card as it will be recharged once you have paid your membership. If you have not renewed by 29th June then your member benefits will expire after this date. If you need a replacement membership card, please add a note to your renewal form.
The AGM is planned for Wednesday 14th June 2023 at 7pm. Details will be posted in the Club nearer the time and questions submitted in advance will be considered, we hope to see you there.

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 that are 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 29th 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 29th 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.
