Interest Groups

Getting Involved
Our Interest Groups are self-led and managed and are to be enjoyable. There are normally no paid tutors! It is extremely helpful if members are willing to play an active part in ensuring that interest group meetings work effectively. This can involve anything from helping with refreshments through to leading a group yourself.

The Committee is always happy to consider requests for new groups. Taking part in a group involves accepting how that group works and any other conditions agreed by the Committee. Beyond that, groups run themselves with the aim of keeping everyone happily on board.

Membership
In principle, all members are entitled to membership of all groups. However, for practical reasons, some group sizes must be limited, e.g. to take into account the amount of available equipment or space in a meeting room. Further detail is provided as necessary in the information about individual groups.
