The Third Thursday Club is a membership only club which attracts industry professionals to partake in an informal monthly meeting, in Leeds via a non-scripted networking forum with members driving their own involvement from brief chats amongst the attending members or a more targeted approach with those people members really want to talk to.

In all instances the Third Thursday Club committee are here to facilitate the process and encourage the fostering of new and successful relationships across our membership base. After all, if you’re not successful we will not be successful! Now you’ve seen what we’re about, let us show you how we operate.


The Third Thursday Club is strictly a membership only club open to property and construction professionals across all related sectors therein. The Third Thursday Club is membership only to allow the committee to monitor membership to ensure only relevant organisations can take membership therefore ensuring meaningful relationships can be fostered through participating members. Of course, the Third Thursday Club committee allows for visitors and guests (in the property and construction field) and we actively promote attendance at the early stages to try before you buy!


The Third Thursday Club is a voluntarily managed club and our committee undertake the everyday running and organizing/management of the monthly networking events. As you can imagine this can consume substantial amounts of personal time for our committee so we kindly request that all payments, communications and confirmations are received in a timely manner from our members so that key tasks can be undertaken throughout the months.

Our team is:

Craig Battye FCIOB
Arthur Duce
Vice Chair:
Yvonne Harrop
Committee Member:
Cath Wills
Admin Support:
Rachel Shaw

As the Third Thursday Club grows and develops we will require additional committee members to support key specialist growth activities. Please let us know if you are interested in this area of support.

We will ask then for volunteers and depending how many members volunteer some maybe disappointed due to the number we may need.
