homenextChairman's Introduction

Welcome to the Men's Association of Stanbridge & Tilsworth (MAST)

PictureWe are a small but friendly club dedicated to the men in Stanbridge, Tilsworth and the neighbouring villages.

MAST members meet every third Wednesday of each month at the Tilsworth Golf Club and the events diary can be seen on the home page of this website. We enjoy a wide variety of entertaining speakers, summer barbeques, Christmas cheese & wine evening, quiz night, bowling at the Dunstable Bowl, occasional outings and of course our formal Annual Dinner. Other activities include occasional help within the community.

We have a healthy membership with a wide range of experience and interests. We are always on the lookout for new members from Stanbridge, Tilsworth and the neighbouring villages who would like to join us at our meetings, events, having a beer, making new friends and occasionally helping out with community events and generally having a good time.

There are several occasions throughout the year where the ladies are most welcome to join us.

If you are interested and/or would like more information please contact us to learn more and how to become a member.

Regards and thank you.
