Membership

If you wish to continue supporting BBS this year, a 2020 badge can be obtained for a minimum donation of £5

The Bonfire Society has now cancelled 2020 Bonfire Night.  Money (and the lack of fund raising opportunities) was a factor in our decision to cancel; along with the very clear government guidelines.

So instead of offering membership this year we are asking for donations.  A minimum donation of £5 per person will get a Barcombe Bonfire Society 2020 badge.

Donations can be made in the following ways:

  • https://www.gofundme.com/barcombe-bonfire-2020
  • BACS to 60-13-09, 41610822 (with your name as reference)
  • PayPal as “friends and family” to subscriptions@barcombebonfire.co.uk
  • Cash or cheque to 13 Grantham Bank or Sewells Gatehouse

Please do email Membership@barcombebonfire.co.uk to let us know you have purchased membership so we can reserve a badge for you.

Please do support Barcombe Bonfire in 2020.


We have a date set aside in September when our committee members and volunteers will be pounding the streets of Barcombe and knocking on your door for membership.  This may or may not take place, we will look at official guidance closer to the time


Membership is crucial if you would like to participate in the Barcombe Bonfire Society and we love having new members. Members are strongly encouraged to help out all year round.

Membership Form for 2021 will be linked here in due course.


It is mandatory to abide by the rules as a condition of membership. They are to keep ourselves and everyone around us safe. Please download, print out, read them and respect them:
