Interest Groups

We have twenty Interest Groups. Some meet in members' houses, others in a hired room, whilst other interest groups undertake visits.

Each group has a Leader or Coordinator who has an interest in the subject. Each group determines its own programme and members share the work of organising activities.

Most of the groups meet on a monthly basis although some groups may meet twice during the month. With the exception of the Ambling group and World Food all groups meet during the day.

Some groups meet in members' houses which may result in there having to be restrictions on numbers. Therefore you may find there is a waiting list and a second group could be formed if there is sufficient interest. The Book group was formed as the Literature group was full, similarly a second Local Studies group was formed.

The cost to attend the History or Music Appreciation group is £10 pa or £2 per session which includes tea & biscuits.

In respect of outings every effort is made to keep costs to a minimum by organising the visit so members can take advantage of off peak savings on transport, car sharing . ..............and pub lunches after a visit , we are very good at finding 2 for 1 offers etc to ensure that costs do not become prohibitive.
