New Ideas

Ideas for new groups are popping up all the time. You will see them in the newsletter, on social media and listed below.

Some groups will disappear because they have become a group and you can look for them in the list of groups.

Others will disappear because they came to nothing.

If you want more details about any New Ideas, or you want to suggest one yourself, please contact or call the Group Support Team.

New Ideas Survey

Thank you to the more than 80 people who responded to our recent survey. You have helped us to see what groups and activities are wanted by members.

This is very exciting as new ideas help LALG to thrive. Now we need lots of people to help us with turning these ideas into action.
You don't need any special skills, just an interest in helping people get together for a shared interest.
Your input could be as little as an hour each month, and there is plenty of support.

So please do get in touch. Jackie Sayers 07970 407635

Canoeing and Paddleboarding

Twelve members are interested so far and they have lots of ideas for how to take things forward.
There will be more information in the July newsletter but meanwhile do get in touch if you are interested too:

Chess for Fun

Do you want to improve your chess and have fun at the same time?
Our friendly sessions will begin with a short video or demo of a chess tactic to improve your game.
We will meet monthly on a weekday evening at a Letchworth venue to be agreed.
If you are interested, please get in touch:

Guided Village Walks

This was one of the most popular choices in our recent survey so we want to get this idea off the ground.
We are hoping to draw up a list of activities for 2022, and we need one or two people who can help us to make this happen.
Please get in touch if you can help in any way.

Meet for Coffee 5 - The Grange

We are planning a new coffee group based at Grange the Community Centre and Café, Letchworth SG6 4NG. 

See Events panel for details of first meeting

The Centre is within easy walking distance of many members and will complement the other coffee groups. The Café is in an attractive building next to the main Community Centre.

Usually open from 7.30am to 2.30pm. The group will decide how often to meet and a favourite day of the week.


Pickleball is a fun sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis.
Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, over a net.

Contact Steve if you are interested.

Pilates/Keep Fit

Around 40 people have expressed an interest in some form of keep fit.

Many members seem keen on Pilates and so we are now looking for a qualified instructor and a venue.

Members are asked to please get in touch if you could lead a session of Pilates, Qigong or similar.

We also need someone who would be prepared to act as the contact point for this group.

This could be a very popular group if we can get the help needed.
