The FWA has a limited membership of 350 full members. Junior membership is available up to the age of seventeen.
The 2013 annual subscription for renewing members is £162.50. Please note that this subscription included £5 for a Wildlife Habitat Trust stamp (duck stamp) and also £56 for full membership of BASC. If you hold more than one membership in BASC then the extra payment can be refunded to you from Marford Mill, but I regret we cannot do this for you. We are affiliated to BASC but are not part of it and the FWA is run entirely by volunteers who are not remunerated for what they do.
You will see that the application form asks for a proposer and seconder. This is essentially to establish applicants' bona fides as shooters, and if you do not know anyone suitable then you are invited to attend one of our winter meetings on the first Friday of each month October - February at Wisbech, or come to some other club event. Please email for details. Alternatively, new members who do have a proposer and seconder may be admitted to membership by interview.
We also ask if new members have any experience of foreshore conditions, because it is club policy that inexperienced members should be accompanied at first on the tidal marshes of the coast. This does not apply to our shooting on the inland washes, although care is of course needed here at times of flood. Please email if you have any questions.
The Information pack and Application Form is in PDF format for window users.
Applications close on 31st May each year. If you apply after that date, you will have to wait
