    We welcome Junior Members from the age of 16 - 18 years and adult members over the age of 18 years. There is no upper age limit.

    We are part of the National Association of Speakers' Clubs. In addition to our regular club meetings we have participated in Area, District and National events organised by the Association of Speakers' Clubs.
