Cambridge Capers

This group needs admin help if it is to continue.
We have a mailing list of around 70 members.
We have several ideas of places to visit in Cambridge and some volunteers willing to lead them.
All we need now is one or two members who could take the bookings and coordinate a programme of activities.
Visits can be every one, two or three months.
Please get in touch if you can help.

Countryside, Farming and Wildlife

After a very well-attended meeting about Hertfordshire Chalk Streams, we have come up with lots of ideas for talks, member-discussions and visits.

To enable this group to take off, we need the help of 2 or 3 people.

String Quartet

Calling anyone who loves playing in a string quartet - we are looking to set up at least one quartet to get together regularly.
We would probably be in each other's homes to start with; but if you are unable to host, do still come forward.
We have two members interested already and we need at least 2 more to start making beautiful chamber music together.

Deadline for expressing an interesst: Friday 8 October

Tubular Bells

Would you like to take part in a performance next year to celebrate 50 years of Tubular Bells?

We need musicians, singers, dancers, stage crew and people who can handle all the organising of a complex performance. This is ambitious but should be great fun if we can do it!
