The cost of membership
All membership subscriptions expire on 31 October each year, so new membership subscriptions are due on 1 November.
Individual membership = £18 per year
Members receive written information, have free access to monthly meetings and may use the Devon Dowsers’ Library. They also have full voting rights.
Combined membership = £30 per year
Any two persons at the same address (under 16’s included free) will receive one set of written information, free access to monthly meetings and may use the Devon Dowsers’ Library. Both have voting rights and library cards. Family members over 16 years old have access to all information and free access to meetings, but no voting rights or library card.
