Membership

Membership is open to all retired men, irrespective of age.

There is no joining fee or annual membership fee; only a charge of £1.50 for each meeting attended.

The Club membership is currently about 200, with weekly meeting attendances usually in the 90s, sometimes over 100.  The average age of members is 78 (youngest 54, oldest 95).

If you would like to give it a try, just turn up any Thursday morning (except Maundy Thursday, the month of August and the Christmas/New Year period), arriving by 10.20.  You will be booked in as a visitor and given the opportunity to join if you wish.  No prior arrangement is necessary, and you do not need to be introduced or proposed by an existing member.

Your first visit to the Club is free of charge.
