About our Club

Aylesbury and District was chartered in 1958. Our members are drawn from a variety of professions, voluntary and other organisations. We give service in the community and share friendship and fun.

We meet once a month in Aylesbury, usually at the Town Hall in Church Street from 7.30 pm. Generally we have a speaker followed by a business meeting for about 45 minutes, ending at about 9.30 pm. We also have a lively programme of social, service and fundraising events.
