How to set up a new activity group

Our Group Organisers are ordinary members of the SLU3A who have volunteered – yes, volunteered! – to co-ordinate and/or lead the various groups and we are very fortunate in having such a willing band of members who are happy to act in this capacity.  Why not become one of them?  We are always on the lookout for new leaders and members who have some organisational and administrative skills, so if you have a particular hobby, talent or capability then do please talk to us.

Perhaps your favourite hobby or activity is not already catered for?  Maybe the group you’d like to attend is rather full?  Then do please consider starting up a new group yourself.  This could be a totally new interest group or an additional group taking on members wishing to join an already established, but over-subscribed, group.  We strongly encourage the formation of new activity groups and we are here to help in any way we can, from publicising any proposed new group to helping find somewhere for you to meet.

It really is not as difficult as you might think so do please contact  our Groups Co-ordinator Louise Elsome  (07740 572956  to get things started.

Finding a venue:  If your group needs a place to meet other than a member’s home, Louise Elsome and Stuart Irons (Premises officer, 01858 465287,  will be able to help.  You may be interested in this information from Great Bowden Village Hall.
