Places needing Members

Communities vary widely in their capacity to host guests during periods when they are not looking for new members. So don't be surprised if a request to visit is turned down. However, the communities listed below have said that they are currently looking for new members so, generally while that need remains, they will also be the keenest on visitors who have a genuine interest.

We are always interested in meeting Potential Members and we would love enquires from energetic, enthusiastic, sociable young people and young families. We live in an area of outstanding natural beauty in East Bergholt, famous for its links with John Constable. East Bergholt has good transport links and excellent primary and secondary schools within walking distance. Living spaces of all sizes become available at times but no spaces are available right now. When spaces become available this note will be updated. Potential members make several visits here over a period of time which is how we get to know each other. You have to buy into our community which means you must have capital (the amount depends on the size of space you buy). Small top up loans are occasionally available but not at the moment. You are unable to get a standard mortgage.

Pendragon Community in Glastonbury Somerset is a centre for low impact living and an experiment in living together happily. We are creative people who find community living enjoyable and care about sustainability. Long-term community members mainly have outside jobs, pay for their stay, and do not necessarily need to do anything at the community other than normal house cleaning and attending the weekly community meeting. We often eat communally but it happens organically rather than being structured. There is scope to keep animals and for community members to involve themselves in finding additional creative uses for our large meeting room and art studio. At present we have available rooms for individuals and a suite for a family, both with en-suite facilities. Please e-mail Roger@PendragonCommunity.com if you are interested.

We are currently looking for new members to join our community. The current unit for sale, unit 2, is a 3-4 bedroom home situated over 4 levels. For more information about Postlip and the unit for sale, have a look at our website http://www.postliphall.org.uk.
