Social and Recreation Club

Welcome, a new Social & Recreation Club has been established at Chatswood RSL!

This new sub-club known as Chatswood RSL Social & Recreation Club Incorporated (INC1601248) has been formed to provide members, particularly seniors, to partake in well organised outings and overnight visits to Historical Sites and places of interest.

It will provide greater scope than that offered by the Chatswood RSL Sub Branch and is open to all members.

Application forms which are available at the front and back entrances to the club and can also be downloaded from the link in the red box to the right.

They can be processed by the Membership Office at Thomas St. You must be a member of Chatswood RSL to join.


Nominations are now open!
