Interest Groups

Subjects are varied and range from physical activities such as walking, bird-watching/wildife, photography, and practical activities such as craft and knitting, various music-related groups and some more traditional subjects such as quizzes and book groups.


We are always looking out for ideas for new groups, and any member can suggest a subject for a new interest group.
