The membership year runs from January to December, so make a New Year’s Resolution and get your renewals in on time. We make this really easy now with an online PayPal system, so you don’t even have to go to the post box if you don’t want to.

You can still renew by post. You should receive renewal forms each December/January, but you can download and print the form from this page if you wish. Note that all membership renewals must be received by March 31st, otherwise your membership is deemed to have lapsed.

Please remember to register for Gift Aid with us if you haven’t already. You can download this form below. Alternatively, you can choose the Gift Aid option during the PayPal payment process, which is much easier.

Membership types:

Note that there are now two tiers of membership of the Downpatrick & County Down Railway Society Ltd. Most members will be in the Associate/Supporters tier of membership. Regular volunteers will be Full Members of the Company. There is no difference in fees or general benefits for the two member types.

Renewal by post

First, download the Membership Renewal Form. Print this out and fill it in.

If you are a UK tax payer, please download and fill in the Gift Aid form, it raises an extra 25p for every £1 you give us.
