Kent Socials
take place in JD Wetherspoons pubs, and the format of these is that we gather at the venue for a drink and chat, and some people follow this with lunch (all at own expense). They are very casual events, and everyone is very welcome.Sussex Branch Social Gatherings

Sussex Branch Socials take place at Railway Clubs or similar. We had 55 members and guests attend a Sussex Social at Bognor Regis recently! Again, You do not have to book in advance to come along to these and the coffee / tea and buffet are provided to you free of charge but please buy raffle tickets and maybe occasionally bring along a little something for the raffle!

Sussex Branch Matinee Club
We send out details of theatre offers by email free of charge, or by post. All Matinée Club offers allow you to bring friends and family with you (subject to the occasional age restriction, if an offer is OAPs only for example), so it’s definitely not a “members only” sort of club – the more the merrier! All contributions of second class stamps are much appreciated as the OSA does not subsidise Claire’s postage and envelopes expenses.

Socials
All our members – and one guest per member – are welcome at any of our Socials in Kent and Sussex, there’s no need to book!

Our Kent Get Togethers take place in JD Wetherspoons pubs, where we gather for a drink and chat, and some people follow this with lunch (all at own expense).  They are very casual events, and everyone is made very welcome.   

Our Sussex Socials take place in Railway Clubs or similar, and the format is that we gather at the venue for coffee/tea at 10.45 or 11.00 (depending on venue) and later have a light buffet meal with a cash bar.  A raffle is held for which we’re always grateful for good quality prizes .  Note that the coffee/tea and buffet are provided to you free of charge, and we just ask that you support the raffle by buying some tickets, as this is how we partly fund the next month’s event!
