Societies

This initiative is being promoted by the Club; so, if you have an interest that you would like to pursue with other Club members, please let us know.

We know that many of our reciprocal Clubs have healthy clubs and societies within their clubs, run by Members for fellow Members to enjoy. Examples of these are bridge, fishing, walking, investment, historical societies and appreciation groups for topics such as art or literature.

We would be keen to facilitate similar bodies and our social media channels would be an ideal way to organise and promote these. With all of this in mind, if you are interested in participating in such groups, or have any other interest you would like to share with like-minded Members, please contact our Membership Relations Manager, christina@ulsterreformclub.com, or on our new private Facebook page
