Plus was formed in 1941 following the

lack of recreational facilities for young adults in the 18 to 29 age group.

young people together to organise a wide range of activities within a friendly,
The Plus Group is set up with the ideal
that as an organisation it will benefit young people by giving them the
opportunity to choose and run their own entertainment.
Simply it's a group of young people within
their own age range, who meet in the venue of their choice, and elect a
Committee to plan, organise, and run their own activities and
Plus understands that for many people,
taking the initial step of joining a group of people you have never met before
can seem a little daunting. That is why each Plus Group organises regular Club
Nights, to welcome and introduce new members to the Club in relaxed
surroundings. Plus is a friendly organisation! Do come to our regular Club
Nights as often as possible after you join, and you will soon find yourself
easily making new friends.
