Membership

Membership of the Building Limes Forum is open to all, no prior knowledge or experience in the use of lime in building is required. Members form a community of lime enthusiasts and practitioners, most of whom are producers, suppliers, specifiers or users of lime. Membership provides access to this wide body of accumulated experience and expertise and an opportunity to share your own knowledge. Membership of the Building Limes Forum offers:

  • The opportunity to participate in conferences, courses, workshops, demonstrations and visits organised by the Forum;
  • An informal network of contacts who are prepared to share information and to discuss matters relating to building limes with other members. The list of members is on-line (password protected and encrypted for security) and details are available to members at a few clicks of a mouse;
  • The annual Journal and regular newsletters;
  • Discounts on training courses at West Dean College and the Scottish Lime Centre;
  • A means of supporting the stated aims.
