Membership Renewal 2024

Membership renewal for 2024 is now due. The committee has agreed that the fee for 2024 will be £12 per annum. Please complete your renewal by 1st March. 

Those of you who joined on or after 1st December 2023 already have 2024 membership and do not need to renew.

It would help the administration if renewals are done online using the Beacon membership system whenever possible. Payment can be made by debit or credit card using the Orpington u3a Paypal account (you do not need to have your own Paypal account and there is no additional cost to you). Over 400 members chose this method last year.

Renewing your membership online is quick and easy and allows the automatic recording of your payments on our membership database (Beacon). This will save our Membership Secretary and Treasurer a considerable amount of work, so if you are able to pay this way that would be appreciated.

We understand that some members still prefer to pay by cash or cheque and this facility is also available.

Whichever method you choose, your membership will be confirmed by email if you have provided an email address, otherwise by post. There may be a delay in sending confirmations as these will be processed in batches. Please retain this confirmation as it shows your membership number.


To pay online you will need your membership number and your email address to identify yourself. Your Membership number and detailed instructions were included on recent membership renewal reminder emails. The process has changed slightly this year.  If you don't have the reminder email to hand, please click HERE to read the guidance before proceeding.

Once you have read the guidance please click HERE to enter the Beacon Membership Database.

If you have any problems, or cannot locate your membership number, please click HERE for further advice.
