How it works

Simply fill out the membership form. One of us will check it and confirm your membership. To join the CLT, you buy a minimum of £5 worth of shares. This is a one-off joining payment. Every member then pays an annual membership fee of £10.

There are also group, business and organisation membership options. Contact us for more information.

‘I’m a single parent, renting in Ringmer. We love living here. It’s a brilliant place to raise my boys. But even with our rent at the lower end of the scale, the cost is still astronomical. It’s always a struggle to pay the rent. I have joined the CLT to try and help the village remain an affordable option for us, with all the resources people need. I love the ethos of working together to create positive change.’

Get Involved!

There are lots of ways of getting involved with the CLT beyond becoming a member. We always need people to help spread the word about our work and projects, to help us with events and in more specialist areas such as design, fundraising and publicity. Get in touch if you’d like to help!
