Membership Report for August 2020

When the restrictions on being able to meet face-to-face due to COVID-19 were introduced, the club was only able to meet using online technology. Some  of the foundation members of the club indicated that they were not interested in meeting online and would not participate until the club was able to meet “ normally”. Some others chose not to continue to participate for other reasons. The following table shows the changes in membership numbers:



Total Members



At Foundation




At 4th August





These numbers represent an 86% increase over six months in the total membership and a 135% increase in active members since the COVID-19 restrictions began.
The gender balance is 60% females and 40% males.
The ongoing vitality of the club does depend upon continuing to attract new members, so that more opportunities for fun, fellowship and friendship become available and specific interest groups can thrive.
If you  know someone who would enjoy what the club has to offer, do please invite them to a meeting or activity.
