Barton on Humber Wildfowlers Club are currently seeking new members to join their club, there are limited spaces available, so if you are interested in joining please do not delay in contacting us. To apply for membership, applicants will be required to attend a meeting you will need to complete an application form (see link below to print off the form) and bring the completed form with you to your first meeting. The meetings take place on the first Tuesday of each month at 8pm. The current venue for the meeting is; The Magna Charta Inn, Barrow Road, New Holland.
The Club now owns approximately 100 acres of land and water in various locations of North Lincolnshire, generally just south of the River Humber, which it shoots over. It also has the shooting rights of approximately 1000 acres of game, pigeon and vermin shooting along with approximately 7000 acres locally for crop protection (pigeon shooting) on nearby estates, aligned with roost shooting February to March each year.
We invite prospective members to attend a club meeting prior to joining, so that you can meet our existing members and see how the club operates. The applicant will need to provide two written references; one character reference and one shooting reference and you will be invited to sit a bird identification test and a short interview. If you are successful as an applicant you will be invited to join the club. Interviews take place after a club meeting with the executive committee. The club runs a probation period for the first year of membership, this means the new member has to be accompanied by a full member until they have visited all areas of the club and filled in their shooting guide card.
We also accept junior members. Adult membership is from 18 years of age. Junior membership subscription is at a reduced rate until they reach 18. Your annual membership fee also includes membership to BASC with insurance.
Membership to the club costs £300 per year (which includes BASC membership and the annual Wildlife Habitat Trust Fund duck stamp). There is also a one off joining entry fee of £100 for new members. The annual club membership fee for new members can now be payable at £25 per month on a standing order mandate, payable to the club on the 20th day of the month (note: this does not include the £100 joining fee which will need to be paid in advance).
