Midhurst Magazine

The costs of producing a physical magazine are high and it takes a considerable amount of time and effort for our limited number of volunteers to produce it. For these reasons, your Committee has decided that in 2023 we will produce one high quality magazine rather than the two issues that we have produced in recent years. It is our intention that the magazine will be longer than previously which will allow us to explore more subject areas and allow us to go into further detail for those articles that deserve more space. As we finalise this edition (number 36), we are still working on the detail for next year, but we expect to increase the cover price while making it free to members of the Society. If you have a story that you would like to share within our magazine, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of the Committee members.

Your Membership Benefits

Talks usually take place at 7.30pm on the third Thursday of the month at the Memorial Hall in North Street, Midhurst. Entry is free for members and £5 for non-members, or £10 for some special events. There is limited parking at the Memorial Hall, but there is a large public car park on the other side of the road behind the bus stop. Talks are intended to be informative, entertaining and to cover a wide range of subjects, usually with a local connection. They also provide a wonderful opportunity to chat with fellow members, speakers and Committee members in an informal environment over a glass of wine. We are finalising our list of speakers for 2023 and there will be some really interesting talks!
INVOLVEMENT: We are keen that members are as involved in the work of the Society as much as they wish to be. Should you have any local issues that you think we should be aware of, topics that you think would be interesting to be covered in either a talk or a magazine article, or anything else that you would like to share with Committee members, we would love to hear from you.

Annual subscription

These are due on 1 January of each year. If you pay in October through to December, then your membership will continue through to the following December. Membership subscriptions will increase from January 2023 to £22 for an individual member and £32 for a family (of unlimited numbers). This increase will ensure we can continue to produce a high quality magazine and attract good speakers for our talks. There is no distinction between domestic and international membership, recognising that while overseas members are unable to attend the talks, the cost of postage of the magazine is higher.

GIFT AID: As a charity, being able to reclaim Gift Aid on members subscriptions makes a real difference. If you are a UK taxpayer, please make sure you tick the box to enable us to reclaim tax from HM Revenue and Customs at no extra cost or administration to yourself.
GDPR / DATA PROTECTION: The Midhurst Society holds records of members’ names, addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses for the purposes of communicating information about the Society and other related matters that we believe may be of interest. This may include information about talks, society activities, membership renewals, and should we wish to canvass members for views on local matters. This information will be kept for a maximum of three years before it is confidentially destroyed and will not be shared with any third-party individual or organisation. If you have said that we are able to reclaim Gift Aid from HM Revenue and Customs, we will share your name and address with HM Revenue and Customs and the Treasurer will be required to keep a record of Gift Aid claims for a period of seven years.
