Gloucester & District

Find an activity here.

Our groups are informal and friendly and the social element is very important. Programmes are worked out by mutual agreement amongst the group members.

There is a small charge for all group meetings. This may simply cover the cost of tea or coffee and incidental expenses, or, where necessary, the cost of hiring the room.

All members are asked to contact the individual Group Leader before attending a group for the first time to see if there is a vacancy. Numbers in groups are necessarily limited by space and other constraints. Unfortunately, this means that there may be waiting lists of people wishing to join some groups. When this happens, a new group can be formed if there is someone prepared to lead it. In any case, waiting lists tend to move quite quickly.

If, as a member, you have a particular interest or expertise, it can be very rewarding to set up a new group. All groups have started in this way, and the large number of groups demonstrates that it is not difficult to get others to join you. The best way of enjoying your interests can be by sharing them with others. We are always pleased to look at ideas for new groups, use the link on the right to find out more.

If at all possible, you should tell your Group Leader if you are unable to attend. Members are also advised to check with Group Leaders and / or the Newsletter Editor if they think an entry in the Newsletter Diary of events is incorrect.

Most sessions last 1 - 2 hours, but if you are not sure, please ask your group leader for further information.

Please note that you attend our sessions at your own risk.
