How to become a member of Friends of the Loxley Valley


Friends of the Loxley Valley very much welcomes new members. We would love you to join us if you share our passion for the Loxley valley.

Membership is open to anybody who supports our aims of caring for the Loxley valley, showcasing its wonderful qualities, and when necessary protecting it and defending it.

Members are entitled to attend and vote at the FoLV annual general meeting and at any other general meeting called by the Management Committee.

We may also encourage you to muck in with important FoLV activities. At the moment our most important task is responding to the planning application for 300 houses on the site of the old refractory works!

If you think you can help us with the Hepworth response, please indicate this on the membership form.

For example, you may be willing to help to deliver leaflets to local homes. Or you may be an expert on local wildlife, with views on how the new township would impact on the adjacent woodlands.

What do I have to do to become a member?

There is no compulsory membership fee, but we would ask you to consider making a voluntary annual donation of at least £10 to help us to cover the costs of running the organisation.

NB Due to the current coronavirus lockdown, we have not yet been able to activate a bank account. We are therefore asking you to “pledge” any donation. We will notify you as soon as we are able to receive pledges into a bank account. 

In return for acceptance as a member, we also ask you to agree to the terms of the FoLV constitution, which can be read and downloaded here: Click here to read or download the FoLV constitution

We also ask you to provide personal contact details, but we give you an undertaking that these will only be used to maintain contact with you.

They will not be shared with the wider membership or revealed externally unless you give explicit consent for such use.

We are asking for your postal address only to give us the reassurance that you actually exist and are not a robot email account. It also helps us to know the geographical spread of our membership. We will normally communicate by email and would in no circumstances reveal your whereabouts to a third party.

If you would like to join us, please complete and submit the application form below. We will process it as soon as we can, and will then send you an email to let you know that your membership has been accepted.

Thank you for your interest. We very much hope that you will decide to come on board, and we look forward to meeting you soon!
