Honorary and Life Members

Posted on: June 21st, 2017 by Chiz Dakin

The following are Honorary or Life members of the OWPG.


Honorary Membership is offered by the Guild Members at the AGM to those who have given distinguished service to the outdoors, including winners of the Guild’s Golden Eagle Award.

(NB If a full or life member of the Guild gains the Golden Eagle Award, they do not become an honorary member as they already have greater membership rights.)


Life Membership is given to existing members of the Guild who have provided exceptional and long-term service to the Guild.
