…for anyone who loves historic buildings, that is! Order by Thurs 15th Dec, in time for Christmas.
Rather than buying more ‘things’ this year, why not give someone with an interest in historic buildings the gift of knowing they have supported our work? Gift Membership of the Ancient Monuments Society and the Friends of Friendless Churches is good value at £20 (Student / Senior) or £30 (Individual) per year.
How to purchase Gift Membership
Go to our Join Us page and select the appropriate type of membership (e.g. Individual). In the box that says ‘Your Message,’ type the name and address of the recipient, and say whether you would like the Welcome Pack sent directly to them or to you. The last date for Christmas orders is 15th December though of course you can still join after that date.
Membership includes three newsletters per year, Winter/Spring, Summer, and Autumn, and a copy of our ‘Transactions’ published in spring. All members are entitled to attend AGMs of both organisations, a great occasion on which to meet like-minded people in a historic setting. Members also receive invitations to our Autumn Visits – this year we went to Kelmscott House in Hammersmith, Harlaxton Manor, Lincolnshire, and Dennis Severs House in Spitalfields.
In the Welcome Pack, new members will receive:
- A welcome letter
- Two AMS & FFC postcards AND a Christmas Card!
- The Autumn 2016 edition of our 60-page newsletter packed with news and events
- Our ‘Transactions,’ an annual journal of scholarly articles on all aspects of historic buildings
- Details and access information on the 50 churches owned by the Friends, our partner charity
The gift of Life Membership is also available at £700 (Individual) £900 (Joint) or £450 (Senior – 65+) – a bargain as rates are unchanged since 2010.
Order on our Join Us page and don’t forget to provide the recipient’s details in the box that says ‘Your Message,’ and to tell us whether delivery should be to you, or direct to the new member. (If you pay by PayPal, we will automatically receive the address and email associated with your account.) The last date for Christmas orders is Thursday 15th December and while you can join at any time, Welcome Packs requested after that date will not be guaranteed to arrive before Christmas.
