Interest groups

As well as the regular monthly meetings we expect that a number of interest groups will be formed, based on the interests and contributions of our members. They can be on any topic and can meet in members’ homes or other venues depending on the size and type of group.

However, we can’t have interest groups if no one is prepared to be convenor. Being a convenor doesn’t mean you have to do all the work. More information on being a convenor can be found here. Please also talk to a committee member or another convenor if you think you can help.

Current and proposed interest groups

Some other Interest Groups that have been and are being established are below. There could be more than one group to cater for all preferences.
