We all need the countryside – whether it’s for fresh air or a place to think, for delicious local produce, beautiful landscapes, or vibrant towns and villages – the countryside is invaluable. The most effective way for you to help protect the countryside is to become a member of CPRE. By joining us, you are helping to ensure that a beautiful living countryside thrives for generations to come.

CPRE membership is from £3 a month, but giving more than that will help us do even more. CPRE members may add their partner and other family members to their membership - those who do tend to give from £5 a month.

As a CPRE member you’ll receive:

  • Countryside Voice magazine, three times a year*
  • Half-price entry to over 200 houses and gardens across England
  • Fieldwork, our newsletter to help you campaign
  • Membership of your local County Branch
  • Oxfordshire Voice magazine twice a year
  • Access to our Planning Hotline for advice from CPRE

*Please note we are unable to send our magazine, Countryside Voice, to members who pay less than £3 per month. We understand that each person’s circumstances are different, and we very much welcome you joining us at whatever level you can afford. However we hope you understand that we won’t be able to provide our magazine.

For all memberships, we encourage you to pay by monthly, quarterly or annual Direct Debit. Please freephone 0800 163680 to join up by Direct Debit today.

£36 per year (equivalent to £3 a month)*

Leave a lasting legacy: a gift in your will.

We are so very grateful for every gift we receive. Even a small percentage of your estate can make a huge difference to what we can do. Your generosity will help us ensure that the county that we love remains thriving and beautiful for generations to come.

It is strangely wonderful to think that the time of our passing is the time when we can be the most generous. After we have remembered our loved ones, a gift to the charities we support can provide great comfort and a sense that the things we hold dear will continue.

We are so very grateful to people who leave us a small legacy. They and their families can be certain that will we continue to fight to protect our county for generations to come.

When a loved one dies, many people request that donations to a favourite charity be given instead of flowers at the funeral. Often such donations can amount to hundreds of pounds; money that is valued and appreciated by all charities, including CPRE Oxfordshire. If this is something you can influence when making funeral arrangements for a friend or family member, please consider nominating CPRE Oxforshire as the designated charity. Thank you.

If you haven't got a will, see a solicitor. They will give you peace of mind that your wishes will be carried out and your loved ones will be remembered as you would wish. To choose a solicitor visit The Law Society website.

There are two ways you can leave a legacy to CPRE Oxfordshire:

  • A residuary gift is a share of your estate once all other gifts, debts, and other expenses have been paid, usually expressed as a percentage.
  • A pecuniary gift is a specific sum of money. It's worth remembering that the value of a pecuniary gift may reduce as a result of inflation. For example, £2,000 now will be worth less in 10 years’ time than it is today.

If you already have a will and would now like to include a gift to CPRE Oxfordshire you can do this by adding a codicil. A codicil does not change the terms of your current will, it simply adds a new instruction. A codicil should be signed and dated by you and witnessed by two people, just like your will. Keep the codicil with your current will in a very safe place and give a copy of the will and codicil to your executor or other trusted friend with a note indicating where the original is held. If in any doubt, consult your solicitor.


By donating to CPRE Oxfordshire you are actively caring for the county we love so much. Our small team of officers and band of active volunteers need your support so we can continue to protect Oxfordshire from thoughtless and inappropriate exploitation, while helping it to thrive and grow; sustainably, sensibly, practically and carefully.

A regular gift of a few £s a month means we can better plan our work for the future. One-off gifts, perhaps to support a specific cause or campaign, are also most gratefully welcomed. Don't wait until your patch is under threat, donate online now or join us today so we can continue to keep an eye on what's going on in your area and react more quickly to protect it.

Gifts to CPRE Oxfordshire - no matter how small or how big - will be carefully and thoughtfully spent to ensure we get the maximum out of every penny so we can continue our fight to protect rural Oxfordshire. We are a registered charity and rely entirely on the kindness of like-minded people like you. If we have already helped you, you might like to make a donation by way of thanks. Or better still, please join us!
