Founded in 2012, we are steadily growing into a thriving organisation with many members, and are looking forward to celebrating our tenth anniversary next year.

Although the Covid pandemic and subsequent lockdowns meant that we were unable hold our usual meetings, we are hoping that we are starting to see a return to normality. With this in mind, we held a Welcome Back! party for members in September, and our first Open Meeting in October recognised the anniversary of our very first meeting. After this we enjoyed a presentation of 'Owls About Town', which was literally hands-on for some members!

Our usual membership year's activities include monthly Open Meetings held at the Selsey Centre, and a variety of Special Interest Groups that meet on a regular basis, some in a member's home, some in an appropriate venue, and some outdoors.

Every Open Meeting begins with a welcoming cup of tea or coffee with biscuits, and this is then followed with a short briefing about our latest groups, upcoming news and events including displays of our activities. The Guest Speaker is introduced and gives a talk for about 45mins to 1 hour, and the afternoon concludes with the answers to the monthly quiz, followed by the drawing of the Raffle.

The Events Manager organises the guest speakers for our monthly meetings, ensuring their subjects cover a wide variety of topics. In addition to this she is also kept very busy organising social events and outings to places of interest.

All events provide an excellent opportunity for our members to meet, socialise, learn a new topic and laugh together.
