The Club meets on Wednedays at The Down Inn on the Bridgnorth Ludlow Road. The meetings are for Business, fellowship, include committee activities , some after dinner speakers and other social activities. We take part in a range of competitive activities with other clubs and also initiate our own events. We hold a number of annual events to raise money for charity. Current events are Classic Car Run, Fashion Show, Golf Day, Steps Walk, Tree of Thought and 100 club. Proceeds from our events go to either local, national and international charities.
