INTEREST GROUPS

h
We love our interest groups and are open to suggestions for new ones. Our Programme and Interest Group Convenor will be happy to assist any member wishing to start a new group on these topics or other areas of interest. Groups meet monthly in members’ homes or at pre-arranged destinations. Sign-up takes place at our September tea.
