How your membership helps

The Mudchute Association could not exist without its supporters and members. Your help enables us to:

  • preserve 32 acres of open space in the heart of East London.
  • continue to provide recreational and educational opportunities.
  • provide year round ‘free' open access.
  • protect, restore and manage habitats for birds and other wildlife so that they can flourish and people can get closer to nature.
  • help people enjoy the natural world and learn more about it.

Types of membership

There are three types of membership which are automatically determined by a member's residence.

Island Member - Resident of the Isle of Dogs with voting rights.
Tower Hamlets Member - Resident of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets (not Isle of Dogs) with voting rights.
Associate Member - Resident outside Tower Hamlets (non voting rights).
