The club regularly invite speakers along to entertain members on a wide range of informative and interesting topics.
More than just a coffee and a chat the club meets each Wednesday to catch up and engage in discussion on a variety of topics.
The club has an annual outing, typically in June. This year was a fantastic trip to Edinburgh. This is always a thoroughly entertaining and education trip.
Wives and guests are invited to the Club Luncheon which takes place in late autumn and also to our Christmas meeting in December.
The town of Hexham and the surrounding area is blessed with excellent facilities for the young and active. Forty years ago the local Council of Churches perceived that there was a glaring omission and decided something needed to be done to help cater for the retired men in the district.
The immediate response to form a club in the town was very encouraging, a dozen attended the initial meeting and numbers increased rapidly over the course of the following months and reached on hundred at one time, attendances currently average about forty each week.
More than just a chat and a coffee was required and the format decided upon proved popular and has remained unchanged for over forty years. The club meets each Wednesday to hear invited speakers on a wide range of topics with time for questions and discussion.
There is no joining fee, annual subscription or attendance requirement. The current charge for coffee and biscuits is £2, which is sufficient to cover the Clubs present running costs.
Members come from Hexham town and the surrounding areas. The venue is Trinity Church Hall in Beaumont Street, convenient and central with parking nearby.
