In early summer, all of our members will be issued with new cards to enable entry through the Welcome Building. When you receive your new bar-coded cards, your old style cards will no longer be valid. Each member will have a new card with their name on which is not transferable. If you have not already told us your first name(s), please send it and your membership number to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can process your new cards.
Each member parent or member grandparent will be able to bring in their own children or grandchildren (aged 18 and under) and up to three dogs.
The Welcome Building will be open at 9am each morning, when the arboretum opens. Throughout the year, the Welcome Building will close at 5pm.
In the summer months Friends will be able to enter the arboretum after 5pm using their automated cards, although the rest of the building will be shut.
Important for you to know
To enable smooth operations at the Welcome Building for our current members and new joiners, Forestry Commission staff at Westonbirt will have access to some information that you have already given the Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum charity so that we can administer your membership. Membership personal data remains the property of the Friends, is stored by the Friends and will not be transferred to or held by the Forestry Commission. If you have any queries in this respect, please email email@example.com.
