The Trustees have given considerable thought to restructuring Club Membership to achieve greater benefit.  A membership fee structure is being introduced to allow the Club to not only continue its valued charitable work for the farming community but to also play a central role in helping the sector tackle the many difficult challenges it faces. The Club intends to do this through its recently established Smithfield Forum initiative where it will act as the catalyst for the livestock and meat production sectors (see above), through targeted lobbying, and through more effective communication. We believe this upscaled activity will bring enormous benefits to our industry but will also bring some additional costs, hence the need now for a membership fee structure.

 With this in mind, we are establishing different tiers of Membership with varied benefits and subscription levels. Membership of the Royal Smithfield Club is open to anyone who wishes to support the Club and its charitable aims: Full (£50pa), Life (£975), Corporate (£750pa), Independent (£95pa), Youth (£30pa). Membership will run from 1st April in line with the Club’s financial year
