Joining the Trust

How to join the Chesterfield Canal Trust

By joining the Trust you will help us in our work of supporting the restoration, maintenance and enjoyment of the full length of the canal from West Stockwith to Chesterfield.

As a member you will receive a copy of our award winning magazine called Cuckoo roughly every three months.

You will get E-Newsletters about once a month.

You will be invited to various social events and meetings.

You will be able to help by volunteering.

We hope that you will soon be able to join online, however in the meantime you will find links for the necessary membership documents at the bottom of this page. We would ask that you consider filling in the Gift Aid form if you are a UK taxpayer as it enables us to claim tax back on your membership contribution.
