Interest Groups Status Page

Last updated: 11th May 2021

As you may be aware many of the interest groups are still running via Zoom.  Some are open to new members, so if you are interested in joining a new group please contact the convenor via the email link.

We are always looking for new convenors to start new groups, particularly the language groups.  So if you are interested email the group coordinator Lesley Bedford  We can help with setting up Zoom for your group and how to keep in touch using beacon.
