Member Information

Data Protection: With effect from 25 May 2018 the EU General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect and applies to all organisations that hold data about individuals. Wyre Archaeology asks for members’ contact details and holds them on a database for the purposes of communication.

 In order to comply with the Directive, Wyre Archaeology is formalising its policy on Data Protection (attached). This was discussed and passed at the Annual General Meeting on 18 April. 

The key issue for members is that YOU need to give US permission to hold and use YOUR data i.e. your name and in particular your email address.

It is essential that you return the Membership Registration form recently emailed to you.  You can do this by post or by completing it, saving as a doc then emailing back to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Wyre Archaeology Constitution: Although WA is an amateur and voluntary society, we do have a written constitution that governs how we operate and includes various policies. It’s been some years since the constitution was framed and a number of changes have come about through decisions in meetings or from the Executive Committee.

The  updated constitution was accepted in principle by the AGM on 18 April but you may still let us have comments by email

Subscriptions: WA subscriptions are due at the current rate. We have no external sources of funding and rely on your subs for purchase or hire of essential equipment that is used on digs, to pay our insurance policy, website fees, room hire etc. Members and the Executive Committee take no remuneration. We depend on you to keep us going so please renew your membership no.

We need you: We need the continued support of all our members, whether or not you can get to meetings. If there’s any idea you’d like us to take on board to improve the Society just email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
