About the Society

Meeting Times

We meet on the second and fourth Saturday of every month from 10:00am to 5:00pm (with the occasional exception). The venue is Linton Village Hall, Linton Hill (A229), Maidstone. Detailed directions are here. For details of meeting dates and games, see the diary.

Subscription Details

Our annual subscription stands at £96 (£67.20 for concessions) which covers all 23 meetings during the year. There is an alternative single-meeting fee of £8 per meeting. Subs can be paid in a single instalment by cash or cheque in January. Alternatively, payment can be made by standing order to the new society account in four quarterly payments of £24.00 (ask the treasurer for the account details if you wish to pay this way). New members get their first two meetings free and are then charged pro-rata for the rest of the year.


Although the society is run on very informal lines, we do have a standing committee.

  • Chairman – Mark Johnson
  • Secretary – Brian Simons
  • Treasurer – Mark Harris
  • Webmaster – Tony Francis
  • Social media, history and events – Jeremey Claridge

Club Rules

Again, although we’re generally pretty informal, we do have a few rules. You can read them here. We also have a new Privacy Policy which you can read here.


The club gained a new logo after a large number of submissions by society members. Pete Smith’s winning design was chosen by a vote among the membership, and features the Sevastopol cannon in Maidstone High Street.

For the duration of the society’s 50th anniversary in 2021, we used a different version:
