Meeting on the third Monday in the month this group meets for a friendly game or two of Scrabble. It welcomes both beginners and more experienced players.



Reading Groups

A wide variety of books, both fiction and non-fiction have been read and enjoyed by members of our two Reading Groups which meet every two months.



Focus on Food

The Focus on Food Group  meets every month to six weeks. Members take it in turn to host a lunch for up to 12 diners who each take along a starter, main course or dessert to share with each other.

Walking Group

The Walking Group meets for walks between March and October. Those taking part need to be reasonably fit as they may include some stiles though leaders Liz Kirkwood and Janet Russell plans their walks, which last about an hour and a half,  so that they are not too taxing. They also normally include a pub lunch!


Craft Group

Our Craft Group meets each month when members get together to try out crafts they may not be familiar with.

Planned workshops for this coming year include jewellery making, painting silk scarves, Christmas tree ornaments and handmade Christmas cards.


French Conversation


Our French Conversation group meets once a month to give members a chance to brush up their french in a small friendly group.
