NEW GROUPS STARTED RECENTLY

 

Due to demand, another Keep Fit & Flexible Class with MMM started on Monday November 6th at 11:30 – 12:30. This will follow on after the 10 – 11 class, which is full.

 

Improving Oral German. If you have learnt the basics of German Grammar and would like to practise speaking the language, this group may be for you. It is not for absolute beginners nor for those fluent enough to follow a conversation. Please contact Rosemary on 01347 833311 or email: improvingoralgerman@yorku3a.com for more details  

 

 

 

PROPOSED GROUPS - SEEKING INTEREST

 

Folk Music Group  Steve G is interested in setting up a Folk Music Group. "The idea would be for members who play acoustic instruments and would be interested in gathering to play folk/traditional music. We would need a venue, as the combined noise might be a bit much for a domestic setting!"

Contact Steve on 07958 486234 or email
