How do I become a member?

It’s easy to join – no forms to fill in! Just contact your zone representative – details can be found in the latest quarterly magazine. You can also phone David or Hilary Turner on 020 8393 9215.

Membership is voluntary and costs just £3 per household per year. The subscription helps SARA to operate effectively and sponsor your Residents’ Association candidates at borough and county council elections. It also enables us to run events, such as TRIFEST and other local community events.

New – On Line Recurring Payment

You can pay your membership via Direct Debit, safely and securely using: Go Cardless

Setting up your annual membership using Direct Debit is quick and easy. You will be notified by email when your yearly subscription is due to be taken, and your payment is fully protected.

Proceed To Secure Direct Debit Payment

We have set this up to expire after 5 years, rather than taking payments forever. If you want to cancel your go cardless membership payments, please contact and we will do that for you.

Please note that the cost of membership has increased to £3 from 2022.


What can I do as a member?

Your membership entitles you to attend our Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is normally held in March. At the AGM you will be able to propose and vote on who makes up the General Committee of SARA and raise any questions/issues.

We are always pleased to recruit members to act as zone representatives. They are the eyes and ears for their fellow residents in identifying what problems or issues are concerning, or affecting, people. Zone representatives deliver our quarterly magazine, collect annual subscriptions from members in their zone and, if they wish to, attend and vote at committee meetings.

We also need people who are committed to working for the benefit of all residents as officers of the General Committee. Some have even been elected as local Residents’ Association councillors!
