Our members come from a wide area of East Cheshire and North Staffordshire.

The club holds a general meeting on the third Wednesday morning of every month at Henbury (St Thomas's) Church Hall when there is a speaker, and we have various interest groups. Normally in most months there is a club event – perhaps a lunch or a visit to a place of interest. There are also club holidays and/or cruises each year. See Members/News for latest details as the Covid situation evolves. We hope to resume most club activities in 2022.

As a member you are able to visit all pages on the site, but you will need to create a password for those pages restricted to members only. The Webmaster (David Walker) will help with this if necessary.
