Membership Rules, New Members information and Membership Overview can be found below. If you are interested in joining the Club, the membership form can be downloaded from the New Members section and either posted or hand delivered to us, when completed. You can also collect a Membership Form from the Club and take away to complete or whilst visiting the Club.
Due to the club not being open the subscription renewal period will be extended to the end of June. Many thanks to the 300 members who have previously posted cheques or paid their subscriptions by bank transfer. Although the Club has been closed with no trading income, unfortunately bills such as gas, electricity, machine leasing, national insurance and pension contributions etc still have had to be paid. However, it is proposed to drop the joining fee for the remainder of 2021. Please encourage family members or friends to take advantage of this offer and to join the club. Subscriptions will be £17.50 plus £2.50 for an affiliation card but there will be no joining fee of £25 charged.

Joining the Club – We look forward to you joining our “Family”!
To apply for membership to the Stony Stratford Conservative Club you must fill in the Membership Application and Questionnaire. You can either pick these up from the Club or download them here and submit them at the Club.
On submitting your application form and questionnaire you will be invited to attend an Induction Meeting by letter. This is only an informal meeting where we can provide you with information about the Club, its Rules and answer any questions you may have.
All members of the Club are required to be members of a Conservative Association so, if you are not a current member of the local or another Association, you will need to join at the induction meeting, at a fee of £2.00. Should you be a member of a different Conservative Association, you will need to provide proof of membership at induction.
In addition, you will need to bring with you the joining fee of £25.00, the annual membership fee of £17.50 (including the £2.00 Association Fee), plus a 5p one-off shareholder’s fee.
On arrival at the Club for your Induction Meeting, you will be met by the Club Secretary Mrs M Robinson or a member of the Committee in the Lounge Bar, where you may buy a drink if you wish. Details of the Induction will then be given.
Should you not appear at the Induction Meeting when requested to do so and do not contact is within a period of four weeks, we will not be able to proceed with your application and you will need to re-apply for membership.
Following your Induction Meeting, your Membership cards will be left behind the bar for collection.
