The Harwich Guild is a club for mature people (singles and couples) with time to spare during the day; offering company and friendship, and stimulating speakers.
We have been meeting at the Marine Suite of the Cliff Hotel, Marine Parade, Dovercourt Bay, from 10am to 12 noon on most Wednesdays between September and June. Our future venue is uncertain; please watch the LATEST NEWS Page for announcements.
The first hour is an informal, social time, chatting over tea or coffee. From 11am till 12 noon we have a variety of speakers on a wide variety of subjects, as well as occasional entertainers.
In addition to our weekly meetings we enjoy occasional outings to places of interest and theatres in London, Ipswich and Norwich, and an annual group coach holiday. During the Christmas Season we have a special lunch. Details of these activities are posted on the News Page . You can also access the occasional Newsletter placed on this website on the News Page (website edited by Colin) and a hard copy is available to all members.
Membership is by an annual subscription; the current annual fee is £25, payable on Enrolment Day, the first meeting in September. This is generally reduced for new members who enrol after the New Year.
The smooth running of the association is ensured by a Committee, elected annually at the AGM, usually held in May/June, before the Summer break. See Committee Page for details of current committee members and their various roles.
Those wanting to find out more are welcome to attend one of our Wednesday meetings; come along one Wednesday morning, be our guest. and get a flavour of our membership!
