GROUPS NEWS

Sean Dettman’s group, formerly on Classical Civilisation, then until recently American History, have now decided to look at the Nazi period of German history From Kaiser to Fuhrer. New members with such an interest are most welcome.

As already announced, Marlene Morris will convene a new Poetry group, to meet monthly on the 4th Thursday afternoon, members to bring poems on a given theme, simply to be read for pleasure. If you are interested please contact Marlene on 734946 or at mdamw@newtelsurf.com.

As demand has not been all that great, I have decided to combine my Mac and iPad User groups.

Juliette’s Travel group now looks unlikely to take off—unless a few more are interested??

If you have ideas for new groups one could start, we are always interested to hear them. Of course, any new group needs a convener.

LOCAL STUDIES

You do not have to possess research skills to join Local Studies. If you have enthusiasm and would like to research a local topic you are very welcome. The group already possesses a mix of skills and very much operates on the basis of supporting each other. Last year we completed a series of studies which were published on the internet (Google: Medium Jersey Local). However, it is entirely up to the individual whether they wish to pursue this route. The group next meets on Oct 25th (out of schedule) and then Nov 8th (back on schedule). For further information, phone Roy Le Herissier at 873790.

NEW WALKING GROUP

We used to have two walking groups, which can be a good idea if the day and time that suits one bunch of people is no good for another. Of course, you could go for both! So if you would be interested in joining in walks on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, contact Anne Southern: 722373 or anne2southern@gmail.com.

LOIRE TRIP

Twelve of us are just back from a very enjoyable GoTours short holiday, jointly with the Arts Society, to the Loire Valley, in pursuit of Eleanor of Aquitaine. We hope to arrange more such trips!

RECRUITMENT

There has been a good trickle of new members recently, but certainly we’d like more—so please recruit all your friends.
