As a result of Covid-19 some groups are currently inactive. However many are still functioning either by using email or by having Zoom meetings. Other groups are still operating more or less normally, and complying with the national guidelines by rationing the numbers attending each week. These include both walking groups, the table tennis and tap dancing groups. If interested in participating in any groups please contact the coordinator for the latest situation.

Unfortunately this means that Groups are not able to meet in person, even if less than six people. Walking Groups are also banned under this lockdown.
