What happens at your meetings?
The first meeting of the month (first Tuesday) is a planning meeting, where we discuss what events we'd like to hold, so if you've got
an idea for a community, social or fundraising event, we'd love to hear your suggestion. Our second meeting of the month (third
Tuesday) is purely a social gathering at the club - playing games, listening to guest speakers or simply having a chat over a drink
or a coffee. The bar offers a good range of drinks at excellent prices.
Is there an age limit?
Most of our members are in their 40s and 50s, but we welcome people of all ages.
Does it matter if I am married or single?
Not at all. We have an even mix of membership between married, single, male and female.
How much does it cost to be a member of Orbit?
Membership costs are kept to a minimum as we are a non-profit making club. We just need enough income to cover public liability
insurance and administration. We try to plan events for all tastes and budgets. Our current subscription is just £15 per annum.
Do I have to join straight away?
No. You are very welcome to come along to meetings and all our events to see if Orbit is for you. After a couple of months of
sampling the range of activities we offer, you should know whether you would like to become a paid-up member. Our year runs from
July to June, so subs. are paid at this time. If you join the club at other times of the year you would pay a pro-rata subscription.
I don't have much free time. Is that a problem?
Many of us in the club lead busy lives. So feel free to commit as much time as you feel happy with. When we are running a big
event, such as a quiz night, we really appreciate it if members are able to give us their support if possible.
