Groups Co-ordinator Lionel Cartlidge writes: I would like to remind members that four new groups were established recently and will be developed during the coming months. I would encourage any members who have not already recorded their interest to contact the following for further information:
|Writing for Publication|
|Ken Kelseyfirstname.lastname@example.org||01306 884329|
|Writing Family History|
|Kath Wellsemail@example.com||01306 884007|
|Dorit Moodyfirstname.lastname@example.org||01372 450956|
|Mike Gilesemail@example.com||01306 884598|
We would also like to set up the following new groups provided that there is sufficient interest among the membership:
The Life and Works of WS Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan
This group would look at the collaborative relationship of Gilbert and Sullivan, their social milieu and, of course, the Savoy Operas and other music and writing by the pair. It should involve a little research by group members from time to time.
The Natural World
This is a vast subject and the group will need to agree an initial focus and subsequent programme. Apart from the fascinating world of mammals, birds, plants and insects, the group might choose to look at the implications of global warming for all of us or the growing threat of plastic waste to wildlife (and all of us).
We can only set up these new groups if there is sufficient support so I would invite you to confirm your interest, preferably by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively by telephoning 01306 898491. If enough members are interested in the subjects, I will proceed with initial meetings to agree the details and formally establish the groups.
