The Leisure Club is a not-for-profit activity of the Battle Muffin Club.  It continues the work of the Eagles sisters who for many years organised day trips and short residential holidays for the over 60's.

If you are over 60 Years of age and live in Battle and would like to join in these trips all that is necessary is that you register your interest by contacting John Hassell - This may be done either by email to or by using the 
contact information in the Programme link below. Future programmes and booking forms will then be sent to you automatically.

The popularity of both the day trips and the annual residential holiday has risen steadily over the last five years and, in some years there has been a 90 - 95% take-up, so, following the issue of the programme, early booking is advisable to avoid disappointment.

The 2017 Day Trip programme is now part completed. The theatre visit is full but a few places remain on the Day Trips (see link at foot of page).
Day Trips in 2017 

The first outing on the 27th May 2017 was to Canterbury with a guided tour of the Cathedral as the centrepiece of the visit.

An unexpected addition to the schedule was a naked bike ride. This was organised by a local cycling group protesting to Canterbury City Council about the dangerous conditions for cyclists in the city - the most dangerous area to cycle in Kent with 53 recorded injuries in 2015 nine of which were very serious or fatal. The visitors from Battle didn't look - of course!


Day Trips 2016

Last year's day visits were to Arundel Castle and Gardens, Shepherd Neame/Mt Ephraim Gardens, The Battle of Britain Memorial/Folkestone and Hythe and a visit to Clarence House in London.  All were fully subscribed except the Shepherd Neame visit which was somewhat short of numbers. Perhaps the ladies thought that this wasn't for them but those that came really enjoyed the day. 


There are four day-visits and a Theatre trip planned for 2017. For details please see the following links:




In September 2015 the Leisure Club undertook a very successful new venture with a trip to the London Musical "Jersey Boys". This has been repeated in September 2016 with a trip to "Beautiful" - The Carole King story and in 2017 will be to see "Girls" - The "Calendar Girls" story
