Redbridge & District

Groups

We are finally being allowed to open up and to once more enjoy face-to face meetings indoors as well as outside. For some it could never be soon enough whilst others are more anxious and want more time but we are trying to cater for everyone as far as we can.

Legal restrictions are no longer in place, but returning to ”normal” will be a gradual process with some groups already being back to face2face while others are staying on Zoom for a while, and some may decide to stay on Zoom indefinitely for various reasons.

Even after lockdown we all have to be cautious. Before a group can start face to face meetings, the group leader must circulate a risk assessment form to all group members, and you must not attend the group until you have read this and told the group leader that you are fit and able to join and aware of the risks involved. Your group leader may require you to show proof of a Covid vaccination or a recent negative Covid test. If that is the case, it should be clearly stated on the risk assessment form.

At the moment only currently active groups are listed on this page. A grey background means that group has no vacancies at the moment. For the full view of activities, please download the Group Timetable from this page but note that due to privacy issues we do not publish contact information for the individual groups on the website.

If you want to start a group yourself, our acting Group Coordinator Liz Kite will be happy to help you. She can be reached by filling out the form on the Contact page. You don't have to have special skills or talents in order to run a group. If you are interested in a subject, and you are happy to take the register of members attending, you are ready to become a group leader, and we would love to hear from you.
