At the moment, we are not signing up new members other than in exceptional circumstances

However, once our service points are up and running again, membership will be open to anyone who lives or works within the area served by Mendip District Council within Somerset  (note we have no association with the council).

You will then need to join in person at one of our service points

If you work in the Mendip area (including voluntary work) but live outside the area, you can still join – just bring proof of employment: a staff badge, pay-slip or letter from your employer in addition to your ID and proof of address.

You will also need to bring some money to open your account (you need to save £5 within three months, or your account will be closed…) and, if you want to continue saving by standing order, bring details of your bank account so that you can complete the form.
