We have a Members Meeting on the 1st Thursday of the month at 2pm in The Groves Sports and Social Club, Chester Rd, Whitby, doors open 1.30pm. There we have a guest speaker followed by refreshments and an opportunity to socialise with other members. Admission is £1.50 for members and £2 for visitors, if you are not a member but are interested and would like to know more about us you can come along to two members meetings before committing yourself.
Our interest groups meet in various locations and there you can use the skills and experience you have acquired in your working life to help others and benefit from the skills and experience of other group members. The important thing is that in doing so you enjoy yourself, have fun and make new friends.
We have a Social Committee that organises outings to theatres and places of interest throughout the local area and we have a Luncheon Club that arranges meals at local restaurants and hostelries.
Our annual subscription for 2019/20 is £10 and joining an interest group costs nothing or may involve a modest contribution. Do come along to one of our Members' Meetings to find out what we are about. You will be made most welcome.
