Our Club is based in Fleet Hampshire and its name comes from Fleet Pond which in Anglo-Saxon times was known as Fogelmersh or Fugelmere which was the habitat of water fowl and other birds.
According to its constitution, the Aims and Objects are "To promote fellowship among members by holding a monthly luncheon meeting and by promoting other activities".
Membership is open to men aged 60 or over, or who have partially or fully retired from professional or business activities and are resident in Fleet or the surrounding district.
Meetings are normally held at 12 noon for 1 pm at the Lismoyne Hotel, Fleet, on the 2nd Monday of each month.
The website is intended to
- introduce the club to potential new members
- provide a record of some of its recent activities
- present other information which may benefit the membership
If you have any comments or suggestions, or you wish to enquire about membership, then send us an Email or contact our Secretary, Simon Hackett, on 01252 684346.
Starting in 2017, it is planned to run an annual Photographic Competition in which members are asked to submit up to 3 prints relating to any or all of three classes: Familiar Faces; Familiar Places; and Water. Entries will be displayed at the June luncheon when the winners will be announced and prizes awarded. Full details are available here.
