How to become a Member

There are some 1,300 homes in Otford Parish. At the last census, 53% had lived in the parish for over 20 years. In recent years, however, there has been a visible influx of new families entering the village. Our Society must respond to the needs of both the long-term and the newer, younger residents, providing support and enthusiasm for fresh, original ideas.

All Otford residents are considered to be members of the Society, but we would not be able to continue with our projects, campaigns and programme of events without financial support. In 2023 many Otford households made a donation towards this work, supplemented by income from some of our fundraising events. In order to carry out our programme of activities in 2024 we hope that this support will continue, and that every household will feel able to make a minimum donation of £10 towards our annual running costs.

We are asking everyone to set up an annual Standing Order in January using the following bank details:
