Anyone living in Wheathampstead or having their business located here can become a member of WEB. If you and your business are located outside of the parish then you can still become a member, although we try to ensure this doesn’t cause a conflict of interests with other local businesses. If in doubt, just contact the membership secretary by email using firstname.lastname@example.org.

How to Join:
The first step is to ensure you and your business are registered via the website at: wheathampstead.org.uk/register/
As part of the registration you can indicate you’re interested in Membership and then we will be in touch. If you’re resident in the village then membership is assured and you can proceed to step 2, which is to make a payment of £25 (see below). If you’re located outside of the parish you will need to liaise with the membership secretary before making a payment.
Payments can be made in several ways:
1. Online banking (the preferred option). Please make a Bank Transfer or set up a Standing Order into WEB’s account. The account details are as follows:
Account name: W.E.B.
Sort Code: 40-23-11
Reference: it is important that you use your Surname or Business name so we know who has made the payment.
Once payment has been made please send the treasurer and membership secretary an email to confirm the payment. Their email addresses are email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Cheque: Please make a cheque out to W.E.B. and give to the treasurer (currently Carol Tizard) at one of the WEB meetings.
3. Cash: The Treasurer can take your membership payment in cash but please check for a confirmation email within 48 hours. They’re only human and mistakes can be made.
