The Canary Social Club, 104 Thorpe Road



Welcoming all those that serve; and have served with HM Armed Forces.

The Norwich Branch of the Royal Naval Association meets at 1930 on the second Tuesday of each month at:

The Canary Social Club
104, Thorpe Road (junction with Rosary Road)

Who's It For?
It's for everyone, whether you are currently serving or have served in the Naval Service; it’s also for your family and friends. We know that once Naval Service has been experienced, life is never the same again, but in the RNA, it can be shared and enjoyed for the rest of your life.
As a member of the RNA, you’ll have access to social and welfare advice, involvement in our many social or fundraising events. If you’d like a taster of what we’re about, our Branch Secretary would be delighted to host you as a guest at our next branch meeting.

How much is Membership?
Membership costs just £18 a year; you will then be able to use any of the RNA Branches across the world.
Types of Membership
Full Membership
For current and former Naval Service personnel (this includes the RN, RM, WRNS, QARNNS, RNR, RMR, RFA, RNXS). As a Full Member, you will have voting rights to help form how your branch could be run. You will also be eligible for election to National Council to represent your branch and area.
Associate Membership
For families, friends and anyone who supports our Naval Service.

Our Core Values

Shared backgrounds and equality in rank. We share the same bonds, the same mindset, and even the same language (Jackspeak!). We are all equal. We are the heart and soul of the Royal Naval Association.

To each other and our dependants. We will always support and look out for each other. Our loyalty is to all our shipmates, our local communities, the personnel and dependants of the Naval Service, along with other charities or organisations with naval connections.

We are proud to serve and proud to represent our country and the Naval Service. Our pride in serving our country never leaves us. Nor do we forget those who have fallen for our country or who fight now. We are deeply honoured to represent them on both a national and international level.

Friends in fun, fellowship and need. Your shipmates will always be here for you, whether it’s about a job, ideas for a fun day out or just an arm around the shoulder. We will never leave you or your dependants in despair.
