Your membership

RHC offers a range of benefits through its Membership schemes.

On payment of an annual fee, your Membership will last for 12 months from the date of payment.

RHC shall determine and publish application and renewal fees from time to time and will notify Members of changes ahead of annual renewals.

Subject to your statutory rights to cancel, a Membership fee shall not be refunded.
RHC reserves the right to offer time-limited discounts or incentives on Membership subscriptions from time to time. These will only be available to Members joining or renewing within the time frame specified.

Membership benefits

Membership of RHC offers a range of benefits which are listed on our website.

RHC may, from time to time, review the range of benefits on offer to you and reserves the right to make changes. We will communicate these changes to Members in advance by email, mail and on our website.

Due to high demand for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Private View and drinks reception, at least one named Governor's Circle member must be in attendance in order to use this benefit.

Renewal notifications and expiry of membership

Members will be sent a renewal notice in the month before their expiry date.

Members who pay their renewal fee late, but no more than three months after their renewal due date, will have their Membership renewal backdated to the renewal due date, to ensure there is no break in Membership cover, so that benefits can continue to be enjoyed seamlessly.

Any unused Membership benefits will expire at the end of the Membership period and cannot be carried forward into subsequent years.

A Member must notify RHC of any change of address and contact details for communication as soon as is possible. RHC will not be responsible for losses of any kind, including loss of benefits, that may arise as a result of the failure of a Member to advise RHC of a change of address or contact details.

Termination of membership

RHC may reject any application for Membership where an individual or corporate body, association or organisation appears to be ineligible for Membership or for any other reason where they consider it to be in the interest of RHC to do so.

Membership shall be terminated (i) if payment of any Membership fee has not been received by RHC within three months of the due date; or (ii) if after considering a complaint concerning the conduct of an individual Member the Membership team is of the view that Membership should be terminated.
