Mapperley & District

Interest Groups

We already have a range of activities. Members learn from each other by sharing their knowledge, skills and experience. People with a lifetime of experience, expertise and know-how in occupations, professions or hobbies are encouraged to form interest groups and share their knowledge with fellow members. We encourage members to organise their own activities in a variety of subjects. So if you have a particular interest in a subject not included, we offer assistance with starting one.

Sometimes, groups meet in members' homes; consequently, the size of these groups is limited in size, and therefore there may be a waiting list. The setting up of additional interest groups is strongly encouraged, but is dependent on the willingness of existing or new members to form another group. Larger groups may hire a local hall and there is a small charge to cover any expenses (like venue hire), the groups will be self financing.

These groups are now either running or are looking for interested members:
