About Us

Citrus Club was established in March 2010 with the aim of creating a social network for professional people and familes. We currently have about 40 members and we aim to grow the club even more in future.

Whether you're single, in a relationship, married with children, or if your children have now moved out, we believe that everyone should enjoy life and socialise more!

We organise regular activities including badminton, squash, drinks, meals out, walks, cinema nights, art and cultural activities, weekends away and more ..

In addition to events organised by Citrus, members often organise their own events such as meals out, cinema trips, walks, summer holidays and ski holidays.
