Free HOS Membership to Young Birders

The Cameron Bespolka Trust has teamed up with the Hampshire Ornithological Society (HOS) to offer free membership to young birders.

To qualify for this great offer, applicants need to be in full time education and be 21 years old or younger. Applications will be accepted from those living in Hampshire and the surrounding counties. The main criterion is that they visit Hampshire on a regular basis to gain the maximum benefit from HOS membership. The Trust is also happy to fund membership for birders who are away at university.

Just launched this June, it is hoped that the scheme will attract around 20 young members in its first year.

Cameron Bespolka Trustee and HOS Chairman, Keith Betton, explained: "We (HOS) are lucky to have a thriving membership of nearly 2,000 members, but only one of those is a teenager - so we have decided to do something about it."

The offer of membership will be renewed annually so long as the member wants it and still qualifies.  Anyone wishing to take up the offer should get in touch with Keith Betton via email
