The Battle Muffins are primarily a dining club. Members meet on the second Thursday evening of each month, usually at Crowhurst Park, where the occasion lends itself to an excellent social evening around a meal and guest speaker.
We also hold special events for members and guests. We are often asked to help at events in and around Battle, for example by marshalling, setting up stalls or helping at other charitable events.
We also run a Leisure Club for the over 65`s in the Battle area, running day trips and an annual 5/6 day residential trip in the UK. .
Club funds are raised by a collection in the Charity Muffin Bell circulated during the monthly meal, and by other social events and fund raising activities. Surpluses get transferred into a charity account from which donations to local organisations and individuals are made. In recent years we have managed to donate in excess of £5000 a year to such local good causes.
