FRA Membership Details

Membership of The FRA is inexpensive, easy to apply for and open to all residents of the Forestdale Estate ("individual members") and any members of clubs and associations regularly using the Forum Community Centre ("group members").

In addition any potential members falling outside of the above two groups can apply for membership ("associate members") providing:−

  • they live within a reasonable travelling distance of the centre, and have a general association within the larger local area within which the estate is situated,and undertake to support and abide by the aims, remit and rules of the association
  • they are proposed and seconded by two existing members
  • their membership application is authorised by the Membership Secretary

There is an initial joining fee of £10 to join the FRA in the first year as well as the first annual membership fee of £10. After this there is just the £10 annual renewal fee to pay.

You can download an application form, then all you need do is bring in the application form to the community centre and speak to one of our staff in the members lounge area after midday.

You can also download a membership renewal form
and the current copy of the membership rule booklet.
