Become a Member

It is important for the Friends of Rede Common that we benefit from a large membership of individuals. In other words those who are interested in keeping our green space in a good condition for the benefit of the community and future generations. It costs nothing to be a member of Rede Common. All we need is your basic contact details so we can put you on our list.

Who Are Our Members?

Our existing members are locals that use the the common and are often interested in the work that we do. Individuals that are keen to protect the nature reserve from housing development. A percentage of members give up some of their time to attend our meetups.

Membership Benefits

Rede Common members get:

  • To join our mailing list for news and updates.
  • E-mail invites to events.
  • To attend our work days.
  • Vote at our AGM on important issues.
  • Apply to join the committee.


If members can attend our meetups it would be much appreciated. We can only thrive if some of our members get together once a month on site. At each meetup we carry out tasks in our management plan.

Honorary Member

For many years Rita Hunt worked hard to get management plans implemented and Rede Common well known in the local area. Some of her biggest achievements included getting the common LNR status, launching the “Responsible Dog Ownership” scheme and arranging for a container for tools and meet-ups. Rita was also involved in the creation and launch of the Strood Community Trail. With this in mind the Trustees have decided to make her a Honorary Member in recognition of her long service and support to the charity. We wish Rita Hunt all the best with her retirement.
