Become a Member
An annual membership is £10. However, increasing our membership is not just about generating welcome income.
In our role as Consultee on all matters affecting Barnes Common and Vine Road Recreation Ground, increasing membership enables us to represent as wide a cross-section as possible of our local community. This helps make your voice heard and strengthens our credibility in negotiations on your behalf.
Your financial support helps us to continue to offer term-time and holiday programmes for our young people at little or no cost, as well as contributing to admin and publication costs.
