NEW GROUPS - Started or awaiting leader

Watch this space for any new or upcoming groups. Ideas for new groups should be sent to our Groups Coordinator and will be listed below. So for starters here are a few ideas to get you thinking

++++++++++++++++++++++ VERY IMPORTANT!! ++++++++++++++++++++++
Where the group is suggested, it doesn't imply we have a group leader ready to start the group running! This is an IDEAS list. The new leader could even be you of course SO if you have a burning interest in an activity or interest - just start the group yourself!! U3A is all about self help
