About the group

This group was set up in 1985. The group meets 3/4 times a year for a variety of events and activities including entertainment events, a summer garden barbecue, quizzes and speaker meetings.

The group has a small band of volunteers who organise and run the events and activities. There are additional helpers who help at the meeting (e.g refreshments, welcome table, guess the weight of the cake etc).

The group meets in a variety of local venues depending on the event (e.g member’s garden, church hall, café etc). The group can have up to 35 people attending meetings.


Future meeting dates

All group meetings are postponed until further notice due to COVID-19, however we would like to invite you to take this opportunity to join our virtual groups on Facebook and to reach out to people near you that you may not have met through your normal group meetings. There are individual pages for each UK region and you can find the groups here.
