Potential New Groups

All the latest information we have on the formation of new groups is on this page Return to the main Group News page for other group information including groups seeking more members.


Following the Group Secretary’s appeal in the Newsletter, Mike Holt and Roger Bailey have agreed to lead a new group for Android & Windows users.

As well as teaching useful features of these systems, it is hoped to help deal with users problems and provide advice and solutions as well as a forum for general discussion of the subject.

Anyone interested should initially contact the leaders by email Roger Bailey and Mike Holt giving an indication of any topics they would like to be covered by the group.



I would like to start a UKULELE group to meet weekly/fortnightly as part of the U3A.

If you are interested, please contact me. I used to manage a very successful social Uke group as part of Tadley U3A. The essence of the group would be FUN!

When I joined the Cooking Group about 18 months ago, I did not know what I was letting myself in for!  However, I have not regretted joining for one moment. How better to get to know people than by working together in the kitchen and then jointly devouring a delicious meal. Many of the recipes chosen have been so good that members have used them again at home. As Chris says, it would be good to form another group, and don’t worry if your kitchen is small. Mine is and it just makes the logistics more interesting. And it does not matter what your experience is.
