Various special interest groups organise meetings and activities which you are warmly invited to attend. Information about when the groups meet will be announced at the Coffee Mornings, and also posted on the website Calendar. You can sign up for activities organized by these groups at the Coffee Mornings.
Several of the groups have their own group e-mail list that members use to communicate with other members of that group. E-mails sent to these lists are automatically distributed to everyone subscribed to that list.
If you wish to join a particular group e-mail list you can do so by providing your details on the sign-up sheets on the message board at each Coffee Morning. Please be patient as all groups are run entirely by volunteers and it may take a few days for the group moderator to add you to the list.
