The main function of The R&R Club is a bringing together of retail rent review and lease renewal surveyors.  There are three or four informal get-togethers per year and one formal dinner with guest speakers. The get-togethers are a good opportunity for surveyors new to the profession to put faces to names, and for members who have been around for years to reacquaint themselves with past colleagues.

By becoming a member of the R&R you are part of a club that brings together a diversity of retail rent review and lease renewal surveyors who meet to exchange opinions, problems and market news over a beer or two at the various events throughout the year.

The current membership stands at 300 and growing.

In that vain and to move things forward, we have set up a  LinkedIn group - if you are an R&R Club member already, please click here and join the group (or search The R&R Club on LinkedIn). We will use this group to announce our events (in addition to these emails) but we also hope that members will use the group as discussion forum. As you will see, I have started a 'suggestion box' for future R&R Club events/venues or CPD topics that you would like to see discussed.


However please feel free to start your own discussions related to anything  relevant to what we all do on a daily basis - several people have asked me if we could create a discussion forum on the website, so this is it!



Dates for your Diaries


Next Lunchtime Drinks


The next lunchtime drinks will be at All Bar One, Picton Place on Friday 28th September from 12.45pm onwards. We have reserved some space at the front of the bar so hopefully it will be clear who is in the pub for the R&R event.


As usual, no need to respond about this - just turn up on the day


Pre Christmas Pub Quiz


The Second Annual R&R Pre Xmas Pub Quiz will take place at the Old Explorer on the evening of Wed 28 November - more details will come around about this nearer the time but we can assure you that it will be shorter than last year and we have asked our quiz master (Jon Lees) to make the questions a little easier! Please put the date in your diaries
