Paying by Direct Debit

Direct Debit is an easy and convenient way to pay for your Hestercombe membership. With Direct Debit your subscription comes out of your bank automatically and there's no need to contact us to pay. It only takes a few minutes to set up a Direct Debit - we will do the rest.

If all our members paid by Direct Debit we could save time and money in administration, meaning more money will go towards the restoration and development of these historic and important gardens.

If you wish to pay for your membership by Direct Debit and claim your 25% introductory discount, please download, complete and return the Membership Form. Unfortunately, we are not able to set up direct debit payments online.
