Maybole Over 50's
Formerly known as Maybole and North Carrick OIR, we are a community-based group bringing local people together in safe, friendly and supportive environments with a host of activities and events on offer. Though not exclusively, most of our activities take place at The Speakers, 8-10 Whitehall, on Maybole High Street. (For more information about The Speakers please see our Links page).
Activities are regular sessions that we provide on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis. We also put on Events which are special one off sessions which can take the form of trips, talks, presentations, training sessions or social get-togethers
Membership is just £10 for the year which runs from April to March, and for this low price you can attend as many of our events as you wish. Some Activities attract an additional charge usually to cover the cost of consumables. We also have negotiated discount rates for some external hosted activities such as twice-weekly swimming sessions at Maybole pool. Please see our Activities and Events sections for more information.
Being a not-for-profit organisation and community group we exist solely for the benefit of our membership, and all members are encouraged to contribute suggestions as to our events and activities. Where there is sufficient interest we will try and accommodate new suggestions.
Please note that whilst we are a members-only group, newcomers are offered 2 free (taster) sessions before being required to join. Also membership is available to under 50's in special circumstances. Please contact our membership secretary for further details if you are under 50 years of age.
Limitation of liability statement.
Maybole Over 50's does not assess the fitness of its members to participate in any of its various activities. The decision on your fitness lies with yourself, in conjunction with any medical advice that you might wish to take. It is your responsibility to ensure your personal safety and that of your belongings.
January 2019 - Resignations of Peter and Senga Mason.
It is with great sadness, that as a result of ongoing ill health, our chairman Peter Mason and his wife Senga have both decided to resign from the MOF’s committee with immediate effect. We extend our grateful thanks and thoughts to Peter and Senga for all of their contributions, tireless energy and total devotion to the MOF’s cause over the last 3 years or so. In the interim period between now and the Annual General Meeting to be held in April 2019, David Kiltie has kindly offered to act as chairperson, and we thank David for his commitment to the cause at this time.
