We are a voluntary, non-profit making, friendly organisation for the retired or semi-retired over 50’s. We are one of a number of similar organisations located in the towns and villages throughout Kent which together form KentARA. Our objective is to create an environment in which we can keep active in mind and body.
 

We meet on most Friday afternoons from 1-30pm until 4-00pm at Higham Memorial Hall, School Lane, Higham, Kent.

(Click here for a location map.)

 

Our annual membership fee is £10.00.

Admission to all our activities is £1-00p for members, £1-50 Waiting List and £2-00 for guests.
Admission to our general meetings is free to members, £1-00 Waiting list and £1-50 for guests.

 
Currently we do not have a waiting list for membership and you may attend for one month free of charge to find out more about the Club, or just drop in any Friday afternoon or contact us at higham.hiara@gmail.com.
