N.B. Unfortunately our chapter is closed at present and we have also had to close our waiting list!
 If you might be interested in starting a sister chapter you can contact us by using the form on the “Contact Us” page.

We are a Castle Point based group of lively ladies - cheerful, caring women who come together for fun and friendship. 

If you are interested then you must be looking to add something new and exciting to your life! Do come along with the attitude that you plan on having a lot of fun and making new friends. You should be prepared to be active and mobile and willing to join in as much as possible.

Also do try to find a stunning RED HAT or fascinator and a purple outfit. You don't have to be over the top when you wear the colours, but we like it if you are!

The RED HAT motto is

This is the way we operate:-
We are a loose organisation (or disorganisation!) headed by a "Queen" who keeps the fun going.
All ladies 50 and over must agree to wear Red on the Head and Purple on the Shoulder at all Red Hat get-togethers. If you are under 50 you can be a PINKY! (Pink on the head and lilac on the shoulder)
We meet for regular lunches, generally on the fourth Friday of every month, and try different venues. It is members’ responsibility to give their names to Carol, our "Dinner Lady" for each lunch by the closing date (the Friday before).
All other Gatherings and Hoots are taken from suggestions by members, and equal consideration and courtesy will be given to all members and their choices. 
Our members may occasionally bring along guests to most of our gatherings, but should check first with Queenie.
All about the Money:-
There is a membership fee of £12.00 per annum, to be paid by 31st January each year. (This may be subject to change)
Chapter Funds are used to pay for registration of chapter, website, printing of newsletters, postage, stationery, raffle books, receipt books, Birthday Cards and get well cards, booking fees, special items for ladies of the chapter and other special awards.
A copy of the accounts can always be seen on request.

Raffles are held to promote funds for the chapter. Participation is appreciated, but not obligatory. Donations of prizes for the raffle are always welcome!

We do not raise money for charity.

All monies held in The Rose Madder Reds bank account and including any petty cash held by the Queen, Treasurer and Prize Princess are the property of the members of the Rose Madder Reds . In the event of the chapter closing, the balance in the account would be shared equally between the members.
Privacy and Social Media:-

Members’ privacy is respected and surnames, email addresses, postal addresses are not disclosed on our website.

Members’ contact details will be shared with other chapterettes. If you are not comfortable with this please let us know. 

Ladies should not post photographs or other details  of members of The Rose Madder Reds on social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter etc., without prior permission.

Our American Sisters:-
Renewal with the RHS in America is due on the 3rd March each year, and is taken from chapter funds. Renewal registers the Queen as a member of the Red Hat Society. Chapterettes must make their own decisions whether to register themselves with the Red Hat Society. The cost would be $20.each.
Non registration means that you are not entitled to state that you are a member of The Red Hat Society, just that you are a Red Hatter of The Rose Madder Reds of Castle Point.
