The BFA membership subscription is £5 per year for a household, business or club.  The membership year runs from 1st October to 30th September. If you join after 1st April, your membership will be valid until 30th September the following year.

What do I receive as a BFA member?

Our monthly newsletter, the Bear Flat Flyer, tells you about forthcoming local events and issues affecting the community.  You get the first invitations to our social events – the Ceilidh, Quiz nights, Gathering on the Green, Carols by Torchlight and more. We also run a regular ‘How well do you know Bath’ photo quiz and advice on staying safe and secure.

We try to keep other email correspondence to a minimum – we know that too many emails can be burdensome and annoying.  However, if urgent issues arise that fall outside the normal newsletter cycle, we will email you directly to let you know.
