We will be spending more time at home over the next few days. Click here for extra facilities that are being made available during this time. Your groups may also be publishing extra ideas of what to do; see your groups' programmes for further information.


The year runs from 1st September to 31st August . You may now join for 2020-21 and this will also allow you to participate for the remainder of 2019-20. A year's subscription (£32 for 2020-21) allows you to join as many groups as you like. Some groups may have extra charges for materials or special equipment, but these are usually small and stated in the individual group details.
