Interest Groups

We have nearly 40 active Interest Groups

Margaret Craddock Our Groups Coordinator, Margaret Craddock, is the link between the groups and the committee and can be contacted via the Committee page.

Group leaders and other members give their time voluntarily to plan and organise interest group activities.

If any member wishes to start a new group please contact Margaret.

Please check with group leaders or Margaret Craddock as to whether and how groups are working currently.

In the current circumstances our groups are in touch with their members and may meet virtually using Zoom, Skype, email and telephone.

Scheduled physical meetings are suspended but the situation is under constant review by the committee. We follow the latest government instructions on social distancing and advice from the Third Age Trust. This is a constantly changing situation.
