    We meet: 1st & 3rd Fri 10:00‒12:00 at St John's Church Hall.

    Over the winter and spring months we look forward to our twice-monthly meetings, where we not only challenge ourselves with new individual projects but also enjoy each other's friendly encouragement. Although cross stitch is a great favourite, we help each other with new techniques and go home with a feeling of achievement after producing something different.

    We meet: 1st Fri 10:00‒12:30 at various locations.

    These walks are for people who enjoy the countryside and who like to look at and listen to what is around them. Distances covered will not be great and there will be frequent stops for discussion and investigation, but you must be fit enough to climb the occasional hill and to get over a stile now and then. Most of the walks will be local but one or two will take us further afield.

    We meet: 1st & 3rd Fri 10:00‒12:30 at Unitarian Church Hall (opposite garage).

    Please note that the first date, Sep 28th, is for new joiners only.

    This will be the third year of a three-year course. Currently well over a dozen members are attending regularly, but I can accept a few more interested members. This will cover the period between 1250ce, (the collapse of Imperial Domination) to 1500ce, (the Protestant Reformation and the collapse of Papal Domination). The class offered on September 28th will summarise earlier work for any new members, to provide an outline of the period covered.

    We meet: 1st & 3rd Fri 10:30‒13:00 at St Mark's Community Centre.

    Got a ukulele? Fun-filled sessions playing and singing (not compulsory) ballads, country, rock'n'roll, old-time, classics, etc. Over 100 songs, easy to moderate ability. Hugely enjoyable playing with others. I'm not an expert or teacher, but an enthusiast offering help and encouragement. You should have some knowledge of the basic chords and be able to strum – sorry, no complete novices. Some initial monetary outlay may be necessary. For more information please contact me soon.

    We meet: 1st Fri 14:00‒16:00 at St John's Church Hall.

    As usual we read two plays last year: Coriolanus which, although politically relevant, was felt to be dark and difficult, then The Comedy of Errors which was the exact opposite – fun! Finally we had an enjoyable session looking at some of the sonnets. Next year we're starting with A Midsummer Night's Dream, then after Christmas we'll read Hamlet. We welcome new members.
