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. Activities taking place in The Speakers are now charged at £1 per person per activity session. 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.

Maybole Over 50's does not assess the fitness of its members to participate in any of its various activities.

It is your responsibility to ensure your personal safety and that of your belongings.
On Thursday 4th May 2017 Maybole over 50s (MOF’s) held its first AGM. From 11.00am there was a display of all of the group activities including a brief demo from the Wellbeing/Yoga group and a short performance from the Ukulele group. This was followed by a buffet lunch and the AGM itself. Last year’s committee was all voted back on though due to work commitments Kate Hutchison felt it best if she stood down from the committee. Kate will be a loss to the smooth running of the group but we have had more people come forward to join the committee. Moira Auld, James Hearton, Kerstin Mason, Maureen Mc Elroy, and Linda Harvey are all now members of the main committee of MOF’s and we welcome all of them.
