Our Affiliated Club scheme works as follows...
Payment is currently £37 for the first 37 members, we then charge an extra £1 for each additional member, up to a maximum of £250. The first £37 goes into the regular GLASS fund and any amount over £37 pounds is put into the GLASS Fighting Fund. The maximum fee is £250, minimum £37.
Our expectation is that all Affiliated Clubs abide by our code of conduct and promote GLASS whenever possible.
As you can see, the fee for a Club is £1 more expensive than the cost of individual membership. We stick by this price in the hope that Club Members may still join GLASS individually to gain the full benefits of belonging to GLASS.
We suggest that Clubs request their members to join in with any local works that are required on lanes (where possible) and that Clubs endeavour to raise funds for our Fighting Fund or indeed make a donation to it when joining or renewing.
We also request that your members visit our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/GreenLaneAssociation and like it, as well as sharing important messages from us, so that they get as much coverage as possible. It’s all about getting our message out to the general public to get them onside.
We are all about keeping lanes open, together, throughout the Countryside. This does sometimes cause us to incur large legal costs when taking action against Councils that aren’t doing their duty to keep open and maintain lanes. Some refuse to maintain lanes, even with our offers of manpower on the ground.
Depending on the size of your club we have varying numbers of TrailWise, GLASS Website and GLASS Forum access.
We would like Affiliated clubs to make clear their GLASS Affiliation at Shows and Events with either stickers and/or a banner.
