Branston & District

Groups

A wide range of interest groups both educational and recreational is offered, indoor and outdoor, large and small. Smaller indoor groups usually meet in members' homes and larger groups in Heighington Village Hall or other venues, for which a small fee is levied to cover the hire cost. Tea/coffee and biscuits are usually provided. Outdoor Groups' venues are usually arranged by the group's convenor.

Interest Groups meeting details are displayed on the notice board at the monthly general meetings, together with the name and contact number for each group's convenor.

Please note that some groups have proved so popular that they have a waiting list for new members but, where possible, it is hoped to establish a second group. This has already happened in some cases, as you will see the list list below.

Scroll down to see the various groups - clicking on those of interest. Note that Week 1, Week 2, etc. means that the day of the week given is the 1st, 2nd, etc. in the month. It may be that the first Monday, for example, occurs after the first Tuesday, when the month begins on a Tuesday. Scroll to the bottom to see a weekly timetable summary
