FODMs Membership

Apr 21 2016 News >> Latest News

Dear Friend

Many thanks for supporting the Friends of Discovery Museum and many thanks to those members have already paid their membership subscription for 2016-17. Email and website communications have helped to reduce our running costs so we are able to use the funds we raise to assist the Discovery Museum.

Currently we are helping with a number of projects including repairing the science interactive exhibits in the very popular and well used Science Maze Gallery. Due to financial cut backs some of the exhibits have been out of action for some time. 

Your membership money is helping us with this work. We are also helping the museum to promote science and technology and would like to organise some science shows and talks this year. Again your membership money will help us to do this.
This year we have made the membership process a bit easier by introducing electronic payment via our bank account. The sort code is 20-59-42 account number 53813487. Please remember to include your name in the reference field.

If you are joining us for the first time then please also email us at with your name and address.

Annual Memberships :

Adults £15

Family membership £20

Students £10

Schools £15

Corporate (11 members) £150

Best wishes
Ian Burdon
