Groups

Update on Groups 20th August 2021

The current situation means that groups can now make their own decisions about where to meet and how they would prefer to organise those meetings. There are no legal restrictions although we are very willing to offer support and advice to our Group Leaders. If you are already a member of a group then your Group Leader will be keeping in touch with you. Many groups are meeting again regularly and several more are planning to do so in September. The latest brand new group is Origami, planning to run from October to Christmas in the first instance.

Groups Co-ordinator Lesley has oversight of all group activity of course and she is always happy to talk to any member who would like to know more about what's happening, or discuss an idea for a new group. Her direct contact details are in the monthly newsletter (or send a general message on the Contacts page and it will get through to her).

We warmly welcome new ideas, particularly now, and we try to support anyone who is nervous about leading a group but would like to try. If you would like to start a group but you can't offer a home as a meeting place, you might want to consider booking a small room at Winchester Road as it starts to open up again? The cost is shared between members of the Group but it's very modest; a few groups meet there already. Another possibility is offering a short sequence of meetings to explore a particular topic or try out a new skill. Lesley will be happy to advise.
