Become a Grapevine Member
Our low, one-off joining fee, makes being a member of Grapevine a fun and cost-effective way to “Network to get Work”. Your subscription ensures access to meeting local trades people and becoming part of their network.
As membership is strictly limited to one member per trade (occupation), you do not have to worry about competitors and with every member dedicated to helping every other member, you are assured of all the support and advice you need. What’s more, with a volunteer sales force carrying your business details, working on your behalf five days a week throughout the year, it’s never been easier to attract more business.
Before you decide to join us, please see our current membership list to ensure that your business does not clash or overlap with any existing member. If your profession is not already represented, why not visit one of our weekly meetings as a guest so that you can see what goes on and experience the benefits at first hand?
Membership of Grapevine is not automatic – your application will be examined by the committee who will respond to you within one week. We have 2 types of membership:  Full members attend weekly meetings.  Associate members are entitled to attend one chosen meeting per month.
Full membership warrants a naming on the “Current Members” page and there will be a link to a special Grapevine web-page for that member, the content of which is submitted by the member and is also linked to their main web-site. To become a full member there is a one off joining fee of £50 and a monthly charge of £40.00 payable by standing order.
Associate membership is only available by invitation. Associate members will only be named on the “Current Members” page and will not be linked to a web-page. The one-off joining fee for associate members is £50 and there is a monthly charge of £15 payable by standing order to cover one meeting. Associate members may attend up to twice a month by paying a £10 additional meeting fee.
