Four Border Abbeys

Groups

August 2019 - Two new groups will be starting in the autumn: "Board Games" and "Customs, Myths and Legends".

A further three potential new groups include Archaeology, Science and Gaelic.

If you are interested in any of these, please contact the Groups Co-ordinator via the Contacts page.
=================================================================================

At present we have 37 groups established. Each is run by its members on an informal basis, with a leader/facilitator to manage the activities.

Suggestions for new groups are always welcome, particularly if someone offers to be a group leader (with support if necessary).

Full Members may join as many groups as they wish. There is no additional cost except sometimes a small fee to cover a venue charge.

The groups meet at a variety of locations: members' homes, local venues and further afield depending on the group activity.

If you would like more information, or to join a group, you can contact the group leaders/facilitators directly. Go to the page of the individual group by selecting it from the list below and clicking on the blue bird in the top right hand corner of the page.

Let the Groups Co-ordinator know if you are interested in starting any new groups. Please contact them through the Contact page.

Incident Reporting

We have recently had some minor incidents on activities. There is a link to the incident reporting form on the top right of this page that must be completed after any such incident.

Please note any group on a GREY background is currently full but please enquire as we are keeping a waiting list. When the list is sufficient we will try to start a second group. Any group with a YELLOW background is a new group.
