Groups

For GENERAL enquiries concerning Interest Groups contact the Interest Groups Co-ordinator, Ann Marie Tighe, (CONTACT).

For information about a SPECIFIC group, including how to contact the convener, see the page for that particular group. You can reach the group page by CLICKING ON THE GROUP NAME IN THE TABULAR LIST AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.

At present we have 40 Interest Groups as listed below. Each group has a convener whose function is to act as administrator or leader in its various activities and meetings. Groups meet in members' homes or at other venues such as Ealing Town Hall. Largely because of space constraints, there is a limit to the number of members that each group can accommodate. To learn if space is available contact the group convener through the group page obtainable by clicking on the group name in the tabular list at the bottom of this page. If there is sufficient demand and if a member offers her- or himself as convener a second group might be initiated. We are always on the lookout for possibilities to start new groups so if you would like to convene a new subject area or activity please raise the matter with the Chairman and Interest Groups Coordinator through this CONTACT button.

In addition, we also occasionally offer short courses of up to 10 sessions led or tutored by a member or associate. Examples of courses held in the last two to three years are World War 1, Astronomy, Cells, Genes, Genetic Modification, Topics in French Literature and Cultural Studies. If you could offer a course covering some aspect of your expertise or knowledge, please contact the Chairman.
