Groups

Our members come together in groups to study/enjoy any subject/pastime which they find interesting. Most of our Groups are run on a regular weekly or monthly basis by members in homes or local halls.

Information about each group is included in the links to the groups below. If you are interested in joining a group please contact the group leader as detailed.

We also take part in occasional theatre visits, coach trips to country houses, stately homes and gardens, and occasional special interest events. Details of these can be found in the special Open Events and Trips group which is open to all members.

Suggestions for new groups are welcomed. Ideas are advertised to try to attract sufficient members to call a planning meeting to get a group established. Members wishing to form a new group should contact the Groups’ Coordinator. Should a Leader need help with the purchase of materials to get a group started help may be available via the committee.
