Membership Form

Anyone can join the Cowes Heritage and Community Group either as a volunteer or as a supporter by paying a small annual subscription fee; Life membership is also available.

A Membership form can be downloaded here.

Because of the disruption expected by building work in the first half of 2021 (and lockdown), the annual 2021 subscription fee is halved to £5 per person.

I/We wish to take out membership of the Cowes Heritage and Community Group and my/our subscription will be paid by:

My primary interest in supporting the Cowes Heritage and Community Group is:

Please treat all subscriptions and donations I pay to the Cowes Heritage and Community Group (CHCG) as Gift Aid donations and reclaim the tax thereon, until I notify you otherwise.

I confirm I have paid, or will pay, an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6th April to 5th April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) to which I donate will reclaim for that tax year.

I understand the Cowes Heritage and Community Group will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1.00 that I give.

Please notify the Cowes Heritage and Community Group if you:

  • wish to cancel this declaration;
  • change your name or home address;
  • no longer pay sufficient income tax and/or capital gains tax.

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
