Become a part of the Withymead family

At the heart of Withymead are our Friends and regular supporters. If you love visiting and want to help us protect and preserve Withymead, consider joining us a Friend. Friends make a big difference to the reserve, either by providing funds through their donations, by giving their time as volunteers, or by doing both! They offer essential support which helps with the planning and implementation of current and future projects. Many of our Friends choose to add to their donations through Gift Aid.

As a special thanks from us you’ll receive:

  • a welcome letter on joining
  • regular updates through our newsletters
  • complimentary refreshments for you and a guest at one of our Cream Tea open afternoons
  • priority booking for visits to the reserve
  • invitation to Friends’ events


Help support the trust in its aims to secure the future of this unique wildlife site for future generations to enjoy.

Our membership rates are:

  • £35.00 Single
  • £45.00 Joint
  • £55.00 Family – two adults + children or grandchildren (under the age of 18 years)

You can join for one year or set up a regular donation below. Or you can set up a standing order directly with your bank.
