Stroud & District

Groups

At present we have over 50 groups running. If the Group you would like to join is full or not on our list, contact Jane our Group Coordinator and we shall attempt to help you start another group.

Groups decide for themselves how frequently and where they will meet. If you have an interest which you would like to develop with others as a group leader, or would like to meet people with similar interest, why not join us.

On the group listing below, new groups are highlighted in yellow; groups that are known to be full are shown with a grey background. The list is mostly ordered alphabetically by group name (the exceptions being the History and Walking groups). For more information (contact details etc), click on the group name. To see the groups which meet on particular days, scroll down to the bottom of this page.

Group leaders: if you’d like to post notices of events or add notes/photographs to your group page, please contact Simon our webmaster (see the Contact page for more contact details).
