Geology

We could start by looking at the geology of North Herts. Geology studies the processes that have shaped the earth over its 4,500 million year history; concerned with solid earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the processes by which they change. We will be having an initial meeting on 23 February (see events panel on right hand side of New Groups page).

History

This group could research and study all aspects of history from 1066 to the 1700s. Apart from group discussions, we could arrange visits to historic places of interest.

The first meeting, probably in March, would be a planning session.

Jigsaw Group

While you wait for the lighter evenings, how about doing a jigsaw puzzle?

Keep Fit

We hope to start this group in March, with a meeting to agree what kind of Keep Fit activities we want to do.

There would be a small charge for subsequent meetings, to cover the cost of a room hire and a professional instructor.

Languages (Conversational)

We have numerous language groups but we could have more, such as Danish, Polish, Modern Greek, Hebrew, Portuguese or your suggestion.

With at least three people will can guarantee to make a start.
