This category may be suitable for those individuals who live so far away that it would be impracticable for them to attend any of the Society’s meetings. The minimum age for Associate membership is 18. Associate members receive the Sherlock Holmes Journal. The Journal is a hard copy document which will be posted to you. Associate members are not sent the periodical notices of meetings and do not have the right to attend a meeting except as a guest of a full member. Subscription reminders will be sent to you by e mail.
The society now operates a “365 membership” arrangement so that your membership runs for a full year from the date you join until you need to renew your subscription. (For example, if you join on 1 July, your renewal subscription will become due on 1 July the following year).
The Society also produces an informal newsletter, The District Messenger, available on the Society’s website. We can send you a reminder by e mail when a new edition is produced.
