The National Vegetable Society.
The National Vegetable Society year runs from January 1st to December 31st.
Societies affiliated to the N.V.S. receive all the benefits as that of one ordinary member (except that they are not allowed to take the Judges Examination).
Affiliated Societies also have the opportunity to purchase the National Vegetable Society's Growing Leaflets and the Society's Medal and Award Card for competition at one of their shows.
It is recommended that a Society Judge is engaged to award the Medal and Card if at all possible.
The Society awards, through the Branches, a limited number of Sponsored Plaques. The Branch Secretary will have details on how to apply for one of these.
Any Affiliated Society is allowed to send one member to the National A.G.M. but must inform the National Secretary two weeks prior to the event.
All members have the opportunity to join in any local District Association's activities as detailed in the Constitution.

You will note that the individual and couples memberships below have an option to make a Gift Aid declaration. Prior to doing this, please ensure that you can declare the following:
I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 28p of tax on every £1 that I gave up to 5 April 2008 and will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give on or after 6 April 2008.
