Please note that in 2020 the early spring bank holiday falls on Friday 8 May, and not on the previous Monday 4 May.

A Group Liaison Officer (GLO) is responsible for each group.  Meetings may be weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Some Groups have several different categories. If there are no spaces available, your name can be put on a waiting list.

Members may attend any groups marked Open without first referring to the group contact. A small charge is usually made towards the hire of a hall, or meeting place.

We are always looking for new activities, and to double up on existing ones. If you have a particular skill or experience that would benefit our members you would be most welcome to start a group. You do not have to be a teacher – enthusiasm for your subject is the important thing. Just email details using the form on the Contact Us page.
