It could well be the best value in town.

Ocean Grove Senior Citizens Club members pay just $20 for the entire year and covers all activities and as many cuppas as you like.

Club secretary Dianne Sapwell said the location, at 101 The Terrace, is a major bonus.

“The location is central, the facilities are suitable for lots of activities and there is a newly elected committee that will hopefully invigorate the club to new heights,” she said.

Activities range from indoor bowls, snooker, chess, bingo, movies, crafts and dance.

The club currently has around 70 members ranging from 55 to 95 years old.

“Now that the chess club is meeting on a Tuesday there are members from all over the Bellarine Peninsula and the Chord Club musical instrument and singing group, that meets on a Wednesday, has members from as far away as Geelong,” Dianne said.
