We're delighted that you are interested in joining the Friends group
or wish to renew an existing membership.  


Membership of our group has lots of benefits and your membership donation will help us to support this wonderful historic landscape and keep it as a place of peace and pleasure for future generations.  The Friends group was founded in 1992 to help the Garden with research, voluntary assistance and fundraising support.  Money raised by the Friends have been used to conserve, repair and revitalise the 13 listed buildings in the Garden and to fund items needed to maintain the site's horticultural excellence.  Friends play a vital role in the life of the Swiss Garden and their contributions are greatly valued.

NB.  Please note that it is no longer possible to take out a new membership or renew an existing membership at the Shuttleworth Visitor Centre.  We regret any inconvenience this causes. 

Join with payment by bank transfer, standing order or cheque

If you choose to join online, you will receive an automated email which can be used as an interim membership card in the period before your real card is issued.

If you choose to pay by bank transfer, standing order or cheque, please assume that it may take up to 10 days to receive your membership card.  We aim to process memberships and check that payments have cleared as fast as we can, but please remember that the Friends group is a charity and that its administration is undertaken by volunteers.
