The History Group arranges monthly talks and occasional visits, sharing members' interests and knowledge, extended and enriched by external speakers. Normally the group meets 2.15 for 2.30pm on the first Thursday of the month at the City of Ely Bowls Club, Nutholt Lane, Ely CB7 4PL. See below for Dates for your Diary.

The Family History Group meets on prearranged days to use the computers at Ely Library to pursue family histories together, with guidance from more experienced members. Kate Cann is the coordinator. The group size is limited by the number of computers at the library.

The Current Affairs group meets in member's homes and therefore it is small, but from time to time, there are vacancies.
