The event programme

Each club is run by its members and will develop its own personality. It will usually start with a small programme of activities but over time this programme may be built up and supplemented by local club activities organised by the local committee and sub-groups to reflect members’ interests.

The example programme items below provide ideas for developing club programmes. What is available at any point in time will depend on the choices made by the committee and any additional sub-groups that are formed.

Example programme items:

 

  • New experience programme
    A monthly programme of new things to try from ballooning and indoor skydiving to clay pigeon shooting
     
  • Taking it up programme
    The opportunity to first hear about and then try things which may be of interest from Golf and Hashing to Croquet and Tai Chi – mainly organised with local clubs
     
  • Discovery (local) programme
    Visits to places of interest locally which you may not have got round to visiting or didn’t know existed – from Roman ruins to underground canals
