Round Table cranks up its recruiting machine for 2012

A SOCIAL club is looking for new members for its upcoming season.

As men put away the barbecues, golf clubs and football boots, Hastings Round Table is firing up an early recruitment drive to give locals a new way to spend the winter months.

Jason Thomson, vice-president of Round Table, said: “With children back at school, adults returning to work after the holidays, and many sports seasons drawing to a close, history shows that men typically look for new social activities during the winter months.

“As we’ve experienced a rather short summer this year, we’re kicking off our recruitment drive early to combat the lower temperatures and shorter days scuppering the after-work plans of many men.”

Round Table offers a wide range of social and sporting activities, often on a week night, such as go-karting, abseiling, shooting and tractor racing.

To make it easier for men to find out more about getting involved with their local table, the organisation has also released a dedicated new members’ contact to help with the process,

Mr Thomson said: “Round Table is all about providing a fun and relaxed environment where men from all walks of life can socialise and get involved in a huge range of team activities and trips. We’re welcoming anyone who is interested in joining to go along to their local Table and see what it’s all about. The more, the merrier.”
