Our members are in their 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and older. We always welcome younger people and have no upper age limit. We welcome anyone no matter what you're age if you like the company of a mixed age group. We welcome new people from ethnic groups expecially as we really like to have a diverse range of members especially those who can bring something new and enjoyable to the group. However everyone must meet our criteria of being SINGLE and SOCIALLY ACTIVE, please remember that this is about bringing people together, getting people out, and helping those who need friends and company. Don't take that walk alone if you don't want to, join SPA, share memories and create new ones.
Our annual membership fee is low, at the time of writing it is just £30 per annum. We charge a fee because there are costs involved in running the group such as the hosting of this website, membership cards, news letter distribution, venue fees etc.
We are run by our members for our members. All monies raised go back into the group. We are one Organisation however each Branch is autonomous and managed by a volunteer Branch Committee. All members have the right to stand for election to be a Committee Member.
As an Organisation we DO NOT leverage fees to participate in any of our events and activities. All you pay is the actual cost of any event and activity you choose to participate in from a theatre trip to a country house visit.
We have members from Bath, Bristol, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire. You are welcome to attend any of our Branch Social Evenings to find out more about us. Visit the CONTACT US page for details of your local branch.
We always arrange to meet and greet new people. Our friendly members are there to welcome you at our Social Evenings and in any activity you wish to undertake.
