Interest Groups

Board and card games are our featured groups for June. Try your hand at Bridge, pit your wits on the Scrabble board, or master the Chinese game of Mah Jong. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner as there will always be someone in the group who will help you learn how to play. Just contact the convenor if you want to know more.

Sophie Pease, a journalism student from the University of Salford, talked to Judith Gibson about the Exploring Greater Manchester group and how it brings people together. Read Sophie’s blog for yourself.

Our latest interest group – Crown Green Bowling – is now up and running and proving very popular. If you would like to try your arm at bowling then why not sign up too? Beginners and existing players all welcome – take a look here to find out more.

Are you interested in learning Spanish? Perhaps you have gathered a few phrases on holiday, or you would like to pick up and grow what you have learnt in the past?
