We would strongly encourage you to become a member of the Society.  Members will receive invitations to lunchtime talks by a variety of speakers throughout the year.  These talks follow on from regular SPS Council Meetings with most of the Council present, giving you the opportunity to meet with us and discuss matters of interest. In addition, Members will receive an invitation to the Society Annual General Meeting and will have voting rights at that meeting. Members are also invited to join us on our annual late summer ‘Away Day’ for which a tour, lunch and a speaker – sometimes afloat, sometimes ashore – is organised. Members will also receive the Society’s printed newsletters, normally twice a year, and are welcome to submit articles of interest which we may post on the website to invite discussion of local Solent issues.  Membership starts from a modest £20 per annum, with a concessionary rate of £5 for young persons under 25.
