  Membership Applications  
     
 

We are currently accepting membership applications, but until such time as the tackle shops are able to reopen and process applications on our behalf, memberships are only being issued by the Membership Secretary, DO NOT GO TO THE TACKLE SHOPS, THEY'RE CLOSED.

There are two choices available, either print off the membership form from the website (http://www.pulboroughas.com/Membership.htm) and post it along with your remittance to the address shown on the form, or you can print the form off, complete it and sign it, (it must be signed, otherwise under GDPR regulations we cannot contact you or send you your membership). Then scan it and email to the Membership Sec, payment can be made via bank transfer, but you must include your full name in the reference field so we can match it up with your application, bank details available on request.


If you do not include your full name in the reference field of the bank transfer we cannot match applications to payments and your membership cannot be processed, even better would be if the reference field allows you enough space to put the first part of your postcode too.
 

Example of an unacceptable reference field - Mr Smith / T Smith / Smith

Example of an acceptable reference field - Tim Smith or Tim Smith BN14
 

Please understand that since the news that fishing was able to resume, that we are experiencing a high volume of membership applications as everyone wants to go fishing again, our Membership Secretary is running a household, looking after a family and is a key worker, your membership application will be processed and returned to you as soon as possible.
