Joining the Canal Society

Being part of something special
The Huddersfield Canal Society enjoys support from all over the country, not only from restoration enthusiasts and boaters, but from those who can see the need for improvements and the wider benefits to local communities. This support has been maintained since the 1970s and with an operational canal, the Society has changed direction to a new role. Members are kept informed of what’s going on via the Society’s respected journal ‘Pennine Link’ and for anyone who subscribes, including non-members, an Email Newsletter ‘Pennine Link Extra’ (Please use the Contact Us form to send us your EMail address and a short message.)

Pennine Link coversOur quarterly magazine, ‘Pennine Link’ has developed over the years; latest edition – Issue 195 Autumn 2016.  Our archive goes back to June 1974 with Bulletin No1 and we have scanned all the editions up to and including a year ago and made them available as searchable pdf files.  Follow this link to see the editions and as each new edition is published, its previous year’s counterpart will be added to the archive.

If you would like to join the Canal Society now, click the appropriate membership category below to pay for your initial subscription through PayPal.  Rest assured, this is not an automatically recurring payment with PayPal; renewal reminders will be sent with your magazine on the anniversary of your joining.

Gift Aid
The Huddersfield Canal Society is a registered charity (number 510201). If you are a taxpayer, you can increase the value of your subscription, by asking for your payment to be treated as Gift Aid.  Currently, every £1 we receive will then be worth £1.25 to us by reclaiming the tax you have already paid.

By choosing the Gift Aid category to pay your subscription, you are accepting that you have read and agree to the following declaration:

“I would like the Huddersfield Canal Society Ltd to reclaim the tax on this and any other eligible membership subscriptions and donations that I may make in the future or have made in the past 4 years. I am a current UK taxpayer and understand that I need to pay enough Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in each tax year to cover the Gift Aid claimed on all my donations otherwise it is my responsibility to pay any difference.”

Please notify the Canal Society if you:
* Want to cancel this declaration
* Change your name or home address
* No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.
We will keep a record of your name, address and amounts paid so that this can be audited by HM Customs & Revenue as necessary.

Please pay for your membership here:
(You can pay for renewals as well; just put “Renewal” in the ‘Instructions to Merchant ‘section of the PayPal form)
Of course, a Society Membership makes an ideal gift for Christmas or that special occasion.  When you pay, simply let us know it is a gift and include the recipients details; we can send the ‘welcome pack’ to you for giving or send direct with a covering message.
