How can I join?
Anyone can become a member of The Shrivenham Heritage Centre. You don't even have to be a member of the village to join.

David Pratt and John Clements archiving itemsBecome a member

Members of the society hold a privileged position in the community as the custodians of the village archives, and as such, membership is granted upon each applicant agreeing to abide by the spirit of the society’s aims and objectives.

Members will receive a copy of ‘Update’, the society’s newsletter, which is produced periodically to inform members of progress in the society’s on-going ventures. Members are invited to use ‘Update’ to discuss current or proposed issues that might be of interest to other members.

Please pass these details to anyone you know who could also be interested in becoming a member. The more members we have, the greater pool of interests and expertise we can draw upon which can only make the society more successful and rewarding to belong to.

Membership of the society is at the discretion of the committee and subject to receipt of membership fees. Members are entitled to;

  • Elect the committee, approve the membership fees for the forthcoming 12 months, adopt the society’s accounts, appoint the Auditor for the forthcoming year at the AGM and conduct any other business of the society.
  • Call an EGM by presenting the society’s secretary with a petition signed by at least 20% of the paid-up members.

Members are subject to a full annual fee of £10 per individual and £15 for a couple unless there is 6 months or less remaining in the year of joining. Upon becoming a paid-up member of the society, the member shall receive a copy of the society’s rules and aims and objectives. Infringement of the society’s rules will be deemed an infringement of membership.

Cheques for annual membership fees should be made payable to “The Shrivenham Heritage Centre” and sent to: Bjorn Watson (Chairman), The Old House, Stainswick Lane, Shrivenham, Swindon, Wiltshire.

For further information please call Bjorn on +44 (0)1793 782748 or John Clements (Secretary) on +44 (0)1793 782708.
