What does Round Table do?
The focal point of Round Table is its regular meetings. Normally twice a month, usually in the evening and sometimes with a meal.
The regular meeting is the forum for speakers and many other forms of activity and entertainment. This can vary from a meeting with a guest speaker, talking many varied subjects such as Russian submarines, Heraldry, alternative medicines and wine tasting (to name but a few) to a meeting in a hot air balloon, or it may be just a meal and include discussions on forthcoming social and service projects. Have a look at the Calendar to see what’s going on.
Visitors and potential members will always be made particularly welcome as Round Table provides an ideal opportunity to establish new friendships
What kind of activities are there?
The sky is literally the limit when it comes to the numerous activities that Round Table members find to take part in:
- Parachuting, gliding and flying
- Abseiling down tall buildings
- Driving tanks and go-karts
- Sailing, snorkelling and scuba diving
In fact, the only limit is your enthusiasm, so if there’s something that you’ve always wanted to do then Round Table is the ideal chance for you to have a go. That’s why our unofficial motto is: ‘We don’t just sit there’
What about social events and the family?
Social events and outings are a frequent and popular way of bringing Round Table members and their families together. These are organised at both a local and national level and could be anything from Go-Karting to Ten Pin Bowling, Quasar, Paint Ball, Sailing, Camping, Abseiling, Treasure Hunts, Quiz Nights …..the list is endless!
Sporting traditions of Round Table…
Inter-club and regional sporting competitions play an important part in the Round Table calendar, with members taking part in many sports, from 5-a-side and 11-a-side football, squash and tennis to snooker and darts amongst the many competitions available.
How does Round Table help in the community?
The main aim of Round Table is FUN and meeting people from all walks of life, however, Round Table is also well known for organising novel fund-raising events which form an important part of its activities.
With an emphasis on local and practical help, service within the community must be fun whether it is car parking at local carnivals, organising Christmas collections or outings for disables children or the elderly. Round Table has assisted many National Organisations such as Guide Dogs for the Blind, NSPCC, RNLI and the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Appeal. Over the past years Round Table has donated more than £7,000,000 to the BBC Children in Need appeal alone
