Membership of the Friends of the 502 Group will give you the opportunity to take part in all Group activities. In addition to receiving our newsletter and an invite to our private internet discussion forum, you will be able to visit the 502 as part of a work party to help out with restoration work.

However there is absolutely no obligation to take part in ‘hands on’ work. Joining is an excellent way to stay up to date with the very latest news from the 502 project.

Anyone paying just £36 (or £3 per month by standing order) is automatically enrolled into the group, but you are welcome to add a further donation, large or small.

Membership of the Friends of the 502 Group runs for 12 months from the date you join, if you pay annually, or on a rolling monthly basis if you pay by standing order.

If you don't want to commit to the group as a member at this time, you can still contribute to the group's funds. Visit the donate page for more information.
