Join us

If you use the Avocet Line and care about its value to the community today and into the future, we would like to invite you to join our Group: the more members we have, the more weight we can bring to bear in our dealings with those who are responsible for running and improving the Avocet Line.

Members of ALRUG receive an attractive and informative 24 page Newsletter four times a year (see sample).  They are also encouraged to attend the Annual General Meeting as well as a series of open meetings throughout the year when there is the opportunity of hearing speakers from the rail industry and others who determine policies which affect both our line and public transport in general.

All meetings are held near Avocet Line stations; the relevant dates, times and venues are published in the Newsletter and on this website.

This website includes a ‘Members Area’ which provides access to the ALRUG archive, committee papers, copies of correspondence with stakeholders and other items which may be of interest to members.  To enter this area members should send an e-mail with their full name using the contact page on this website in order to receive directions about how to log on.

Members who provide their e-mail address will also be entitled to receive e-mail alerts containing news about such issues as changes to timetables and fares, line closures for engineering work and other events which may affect the line.

Subscriptions to ALRUG are payable annually on 1st November, and currently are:-

  • Individual members: £5 for membership valid until 31st October 2022
  • Joint Members: (two people living together at the same address): £8 for membership valid until 31st October 2022

ALRUG is greatly assisted by members who pay their subscriptions by Standing Order – please see the attached Membership Form  for a Bankers Order form which should be used in this connection.

In order to continue its work at a time of rising costs ALRUG very much welcomes donations; please consider making your contribution when completing your application.

If you would like to join please download a copy of the Membership Form and send it, with your payment, to Mike Holbrook, ALRUG Membership Secretary, 60 St Johns Road, Exmouth, EX8 4DD.
