General Interest Group


The Group intends to use the vast amount of knowledge that members have on a wide range of topics, as a source for the monthly talks. Information technology/computers still remains on the agenda, on an ad hoc basis, as and when someone asks for assistance or advice in a specific area.

Mini talks (ca.5 minutes) about a treasured object by a number of members at one meeting.

Some members have indicated they would be more comfortable speaking for 15-20 minutes on an interest. The plan is to have a meeting where just two people speak to accommodate this.


If you feel you could talk to the group about any subject or for further information please contact

Peter Hurst: e-mail: peterh.fulnek@gmail.com Tel. 01595 810691
