General

Groups that don't fit any other category.  Frequently talking about a subject rather than doing it.

Meditation Group

Meditation for inner peace.

Every Tuesday, 7.00pm to 9.00pm at St Christopher School, Barringtion Road, Letchworth.

Gently guide the mind to cultivating a quiet awareness and stillness that arises with taking your attention within. This is a secular practice.
The tutor guides you to a method appropriate for you. Suitable for all
levels. Beginners welcome.

We have a cuppa after each session. There is a charge to cover costs.
Your guide is Neelam Taneja.

Everything European

The title sums it up - a group to consider all and every matter relating to Europe.

We meet monthly, often in the Brunt Room at The Settlement, Nevells Road, Letchworth SG6 4UB but please check the details for each event.

All are welcome, LALG members £3, non-members £4.  Refreshments are available.

Weather Report Group

This little group of enthusiasts would be very happy to hear from anyone who records
local weather statistics. If you would like to compare notes or meet up, please get in touch.

Quiz Team

This group enters a team (or teams) in general knowledge quizzes held at various locations in Letchworth Garden City and other nearby towns and villages. We try to take part in a couple of quizzes a month - not on any specific evening - so if you know of a quiz near you that you'd like to take part in, join us & we'll fit it in. Or perhaps you know about a one-off quiz at the weekend.

The quiz nights we are planning to attend in the near future are shown in the Group Events column on the right.

Please let Andrew Dear (Group Contact) know if you would like to join in any of these events.

If you are interested in mankind's propensity to wage war, from the ancient days of bronze weaponry to Unmanned Aerial Drones in the warfare of today, join us on the third Thursday every month to hear talks and discussion of this vast subject. All periods and aspects are included: recent talks have been enjoyed on TE Lawrence, the development of naval gunnery and life in a POW camp  in WWI.

We are keen to find someone who can talk to us about the Women's Land Army, or a lady willing to talk to us about her time serving as a member of HM Forces. If you are a former member of the WRENS, WRACS or WRAF, and you are able to help please contact Alex.

You are very welcome to join our friendly, wide-ranging discussion of the talk and many other topics raised by members, often concerning artefacts they bring to our lively meeting.

Letchworth Local History Research Group

Letchworth Local History Research Group is the new name for the local history group founded and run by Mertsi Fisher for the past twelve years. We now want to emphasise that research and publication (in a variety of media) is our core activity and would like to welcome new, committed, members. No special skills are necessary, just regular attendance at our monthly meetings. Residents will remember our very successful October 2015 exhibition about early Letchworth industries which we are currently expanding into a book to be published this autumn. 

Please make sure to check the 'Group events' panel on the right ⇒ for the time and venue of the next meeting.  Meetings are often at the International Garden City Exhibition (IGCE)  296 Norton Way South, SG6 1SU.

Guided Village & Town Walks

Anyone who would like to consider taking on the co-ordination of the group is asked to contact William Armitage: 01462 643537 or armitagewilliam@hotmail.co.uk
