Membership costs a simple £3 per member per year.
Membership can be taken out at any time in the year, and runs for 12 months from date of payment.
Residents become a Member by completing a Membership Form and by paying the £3 subscription by one of the methods stated.
Membership + Road Steward Form
Membership Forms are best sent by email - sending to firstname.lastname@example.org - or by
using the email form below.
Membership Forms may be sent by POST to CWRA, 28 Warwick Road, Coulsdon, CR5 2EE
They may also be given to a Road Steward.
We ask for an email address, so that CWRA can contact members to advise of relevant issues and events.
A phone number is optional, but if no email address is available, then we do need a phone number as we do not have the resources to contact members by post
When a Membership Form and payment has been received, a Membership Number will be confirmed.
Subscriptions are best paid by annual standing order, which avoids the need to make a specific payment each year.
Subscriptions may also be paid by one off bank direct bill payment using online or telephone banking - or in person at a bank.
CWRA bank details may be found in the Road Steward Form, which is attached to the Membership Form.
Membership + Road Steward Form
Subscriptions may be paid by cheque sent by POST to CWRA, 28 Warwick Road, Coulsdon, CR5 2EE
They may be paid in cash to a Road Steward.
In all cases, we ask for a Membership Form to be completed.
If payment is made by repeat standing order, there is no need for a fresh Membership Form.
However payment by other methods does require clear confirmation of name and address - which is what the Membership Form provides.
When setting up your standing order, or paying by telephone banking or online banking, please use your name, and house name or number in addition to your postcode as the reference, for example:
JAMES SMITH, 47 CR5 3DH
so that we can match your payment to you.
Our payment details may be found in the Road Steward Form, link above.
Work is in progress on a secure on-line form.
Until then, this link will bring up an email to the membership secretary
