The IBM Retired Employee Club (South Hants) Branch is available to some categories of retiree. The club promotes and encourages group social activities among retirees and their partners (or guest) and is a great way to pursue the activities that you enjoy, it is also a good way to meet other IBM retirees. The club is run by members who volunteer their time to organise social events.

Club News

Recently, due to the early start of some of our events, a few people have been caught up in traffic especially if using the motorway, which has delayed the departure of the coach. As some of the events have an early start and we need to be at our destination at a given time, can I suggest if you are using the motorway, you allow for the heavy traffic and leave a little earlier than usual. I do realise that delays are often unavoidable so for those in possession of a mobile phone I would also like to suggest you add our club mobile number 07810494624 to your contact list.


We have made some adjustments to our Constitution to bring us in line with other IBM Retired Employee clubs. This has been done to enable the IBM UK Clubs Oversight Manager to seek the Trustee's formal approval of the final version so that they can be formally published by the Clubs.
