Welcome, everyone, to our Association's website, where you will find information on all aspects of what we are about. The Association has a long history, having evolved over the years from its inception in 1897.  No longer is it a ‘male only’ society, as it was in the early years, but now welcomes all, whilst endeavouring to remain true to our founders’ vision.

The menu above will lead you to lots of information about who we are and what we do. Here, also, you will find the contact details for our branches - they will be very pleased to hear from you with any enquiries you may have.  There are also links to our sponsors’ websites, and to HMS Kent with which we are affiliated.  Also, please take a look at online copies of our magazine, ‘Kent’.

Join us – have Fun, we do!

The Association held its Annual General Meeting for 2022 at the Upchurch River Valley Golf Club on Saturday 18 June 2022.

The attendance was relatively low; however, this was felt to be primarily due to ongoing concerns about the pandemic.

The meeting was Chaired by Tricia Shephard, Vice President. Highlights included:

  • A brief silence was held to remember those Members of the Association who had passed away recently, including the County Treasurer, John Kingsmell; long-time member of the Management Committee, Brian Culver; and former Chairman of the Maidstone Branch, Ray Pilbeam.
  • The Membership Cup was presented to Medway Branch, which had enrolled 10 new Members during the past year.
  • The Annual Report from the Chairman, Sally Waters, was received.
  • The Financial Reports for 2021 were approved.
  • Proposed changes to the structure and operation of the Association were approved in principle.
  • Bernard Thompson was elected as Chairman.

A video recording of the meeting is available HERE.

Please report technical issues to:


With the removal of government restrictions imposed in response to concerns about the coronavirus, the Management Committee is hoping that there can be a resumption of Association activities. However, the Committee recognises that it is necessary for people to remain cautious and, consequently, it may be prudent to limit or cancel any scheduled event, possibly on short notice. All plans should, therefore, be considered as tentative and Members should check before travelling to any activity or event.

Please check the website regularly for any updates on the situation.
