If you looking for property to rent and are new to the town, joining a club or society is a great way to widen your circle of friends. Getting to know club members who have similar interests can help make the settling in process easier as they can inform you about the town, tell you the best places to go, and introduce you to some of the locals. To help get you started, here at Ashan Property letting agents, Kettering, we describe a handful of different organisations in the town.
Kettering and District Rambling Club
Established in 1937, this club promotes walking and friendship while enjoying the countryside in and around Northamptonshire. Various groups are available, which are designed to fit around your lifestyle, including weekend or weekday walks. This club promotes awareness of some of the most attractive areas within a short distance of Kettering, and can provide extensive knowledge of Kettering and its history. New places can be discovered while walking with the Rambling Club, which you or your family can later explore together.
Kettering Rugby Football Club
This proud club showcases some of Kettering’s best players, with teams of all ages regularly meeting here to train and compete. Ranging from teams of under 6 years, to teams of adults, there is something here for the sportiest members of the family to join. Founded in 1871, this club has a strong reputation for tough but fair rugby which is usually played out with a flair and a smile. Their newly refurbished clubhouse is open to visitors and veterans, and is the ideal place to meet the locals while watching the fast paced games outside.
Kettering and District Art Society
The Kettering and District Art Society is one of the oldest art societies in the country, and has between 80 and 90 members. Some of these members are professional artists, while others are amateurs with a passion for art who produce high standard art pieces. This society is primarily an exhibition society, with art displays being opened regularly to showcase their stunning artwork. This society welcomes all new members, and is perfect for creative and enthusiastic individuals.
Kettering Stamp and Philatelic Society
With 60 members this society is small but passionate and social gatherings are often held to introduce new members to the society and to auction or swap stamps. With such a wide interest in stamps there is always someone on hand to advise you on your collections. You can also learn fresh information during special events such as the quiz nights, competitions and speakers’ evenings.
Kettering Golf Club
Kettering is home to an 18 hole golf course which was formed in 1891, making Kettering the first home of golf in the county. The Kettering Golf Club is a members’ club which promotes the enjoyment of golf and companionship. Guests of the course feel it is one of the finest in the county, so for keen golf lovers this is not one to miss. Beginners can enjoy both this course and the members club and can receive help and guidance to perfect their techniques.
Potbelly Folk and Roots Club
This club is for lovers of live folk and roots music, and was built off the success of the twice yearly Potbelly Folk Festival. It prides itself on its variety of acts, with a fun atmosphere at every meeting.
The Potbelly Folk and Roots Club runs on every third Wednesday of the month, and begins at 8pm. This gives you plenty of time to get home from work and relax before dancing the night away!
