Meetings & Events
The Club meets on the third Tuesday of each month. The venue for meetings is the East Grinstead Sports Club, Saint Hill Road, RH19 4JU (google map), where members gather at 10.00am for a chat and coffee, conduct routine Club business, followed by a guest speaker and questions. At around midday members return to the bar for an optional drink and bar lunch.
Visits to varied and fascinating places are enjoyed in the company of wives, partners and friends during the year. Such day trips include museums, stately homes, gardens, canal and heritage railway outings. These may be by coach, train or members’ own transport. Country walks of around four miles are organised each month during the Spring, Summer, and Autumn, ending with a pub lunch.
The Club regularly organises adventurous short holidays to Europe and the U.K. Recent destinations have included a Rhine Cruise, Lake Como in Italy, South West Ireland, and Llanberis in North Wales, all of which have proved to be very popular. These can be by train, coach or air and are an opportunity for members and their partners to socialise for an extended period.
The members enjoy a Spring and Autumn lunch together. The highlight of the year is the Christmas Lunch when in excess of 120 members with wives, partners and guests gathering to celebrate the season and recall the year’s achievements.
