Full members please also choose the appropriate postal region.

If you have any questions about your membership or wish to provide additional information on your renewal please do contact the Membership Secretary membership@rupertbear.co.uk

When you renew on-line you will be sent an immediate confirmation from PayPal and subsequently a confirmation e-mail from the Followers.

Please note renewal is a manual process involving a human being who does not work 24/7 on Rupert matters. We try to complete the process as soon as possible, generally within 48 hours and usually much quicker. But please bear with us on this.

Data Privacy Statement
We do keep limited personal data of members (names, addresses and, if provided, phone numbers and email addresses) which we believe is collected, processed and secured appropriately. This information is used only for the legitimate interests of membership, such as distributing the Nutwood Newsletter and other information to members, maintaining the membership records, processing renewals, communicating to members individually on membership matters where appropriate, and, if the member has requested these services, access to the members’ area of our website and our Facebook group.

Members’ information is shared by certain committee members in order to undertake their duties for the Followers. We supply members’ addresses to our printers to enable them to mail the Nutwood Newsletter, which addresses they will then destroy when that process is completed. Otherwise we do not provide data to any other organisation or individual.

We have, as required under the new regulations, formally appointed a ‘data protection officer’ and ‘data controller’. These roles are now assigned to our Membership Secretary, Tony Stanford. We have also produced a Data Protection policy, which will be reviewed regularly by your Committee. If you have any concerns about any of this, or as a member would like a copy of our Data Protection policy or would like to see the details we hold on you, please contact Tony Stanford, our Membership Secretary, membership@rupertbear.co.uk.

The 2021 AGM and Fun Day - Tavistock!

Held at an exciting new venue

As you will all know by now, Warwick School was not able to host our 2021 Event.  Up stepped Charles Knape who as pulled out all the stops to organise an event for us at Kelly College in Tavistock.

It was an amazing success.  Huge thanks to Charles.  A full Review of the Day will appear in the Winter Nutwood Newsletter - but to be there and see the Rupert hot-air balloon inflated for what is likely to be the very last time was amazing.  You can find a shorter review with photos and videos on this site.  Look at the "Followers' AGM and Annual Fun Day" section below or just click here to go straight to the review.
