EHR is a membership charitable company. Members can vote to influence the company’s direction through appointment of Trustees and to hold the Trustees accountable for the running of the charitable company.
Accountability particularly includes financial matters where, as laid down by law, the members inspect the financial health of the charity at each AGM and approve the annual accounts.
Membership is open to all from 16 years old who support the objects of the charitable company, as laid down in the Memorandum of Association of Elsecar Heritage Railway Ltd. A Junior Membership fee will apply to 16 and 17 year olds, and they have the same benefits and voting rights as an adult member.
Membership payment is for 12 months and the Fees are set by the members at the Annual General Meeting.
Membership renewal comes due on 31 October each year. New members who have joined since 1 July will not be asked to renew their membership until 31 October in the following year.
Adult - £15.00, Junior - £7.50
All members will receive a membership card as receipt for their payment and confirmation of membership.
Members are entitled to free travel on all Green and Purple Timetable services, by showing their membership card.
Elsecar Heritage Railway Limited is a company limited by guarantee and has no shares. Every member is subject to Clause 7 “Guarantee" of the Memorandum of Association of Elsecar Heritage Railway Ltd. This clause states:
“Every member promises, if the Charity is dissolved while he, she or it remains a member or within 12 months afterwards, to pay up to £1 towards the cost of dissolution and the liabilities incurred by the Charity while the contributor was a member.”
This means that should EHR go into liquidation, each member will have to pay £1.
