Membership of the Trust is open to the whole community and is renewable annually on the anniversary of the start date. By becoming a Trust Member you will be making a significant contribution to the operation, maintenance and development of Trust playing areas and buildings at our Queens Gardens and Manor Field Sites. The annual cost of maintaining these facilities is significant and amateur sport in the town would be severely impacted without support from Trust Members.

 Key Benefits of Trust Membership

  • Entitlement to use the sports and social facilities
  • Discounted drinks at Magnets Sports Bar
  • Supporting and hopefully becoming actively involved with amateur sport in Tadcaster
  • Regular updates which will notify you of what’s been happening within the Trust and the affiliated Clubs calendar along with all our planned future events.
