Who can join?

SOVRA membership is open to all residents of the Shirley Oaks Village over the age of 16 years.

The boundary of the village is defined from the entry A232 Wickham Road into Shirley Oaks Road and to the exit from Primrose Lane onto the A215 Shirley Road, Croydon.

Membership fee

The General Meeting approved a membership fee of £5 per member for the 2019 financial year, which runs from 30th April to 1st May. Members are defined as individual residents in the SOVRA constitution and the membership fee applies to each individual resident, not on a household basis.

How can you join?

If you would like to join SOVRA, please download and complete the application form, and return it together with the membership fee to the address provided on the form.


Further to full SOVRA membership, any individual who has a close connection to one or more of the Shirley Oaks Village's residents or has a genuine interest in the Shirley Oaks Village can request membership as a Friend of the Shirley Oaks Village using this application form.
