How to Support

Friends of Friar Gate Bridge Membership

A great way to show your support for the campaign to restore the Bridge is to become a friend. We need members to ensure that we have a broad spread of views, and a supply of future Trustees and volunteers. A strong membership helps us validate our public engagement and ongoing support which are essential when  applying for funding.

Memberships will run annually from the month of joining and you will receive a reminder the month before renewal. Our preferred contact arrangements are via email, as this is more cost effective, if you prefer other forms of communication please let us know.

We have two main types of membership Individual and Corporate, with the Board of Trustees reserving the right to award Honorary memberships which will be reviewed annually.

Any membership enquiries and completed forms can be sent to membership@friargatebridge.co.uk and we aim to respond within 5 days.’

Alternatively, you can make a donation to help us save the bridge for future generations.
