Long Eaton Round Table is one of the largest Round Table clubs in Great Britain and Ireland, with around forty members. Known for its charitable activities, Round Table is at its heart just a bunch of guys having a good time. We meet every two weeks, and do all sorts events that all normally ending up in a pub somewhere. Well, there has to be some incentive!
Round Table gives you the opportunity to try new experiences – for example white water rafting, quad biking, go-karting, indoor cricket, clay shooting, and bowling. It’s not all adrenalin-junkie stuff though: more sedate events include formal dinners, pub games, and curry nights. In Long Eaton, our major regular fund raising events each year revolve around a bonfire night and the Christmas float. Both raise several thousand pounds that goes mainly to local charities and causes.
Every couple of years we like to do a big challenge. In 2008, about twenty five intrepid members took part in the 3 Peaks Challenge – hiking up and down Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Mount Snowdon all in 24 hours. A couple of years before that we cycled to Paris.
