Interest Groups

Apart from the monthly general meeting, a number of interest groups meet regularly for discussion and learning on a chosen topic. Convenors organise meetings which may be in a participant’s home or in a public room. They may be held weekly, fortnightly or monthly, and are usually held during the day.

Members often attend more than one interest group, and are encouraged to suggest or start a new group, after discussion with the committee.
