Italian – brush up your Italian

Have you studied Italian for a few years? Do you need a chance to use it before you lose it? We are a relaxed and informal group conversing at a fairly simple level, with the aim of becoming more confident and fluent over time.

Wine Appreciation

 

The Wine Appreciation Group meets on the second Thursday of the month at 10.30am, normally finishing by 12 noon. Our regular venue is the Victoria Park Bowls & Croquet Club, Ballards Lane, where there is plenty of parking.

Most meetings are themed on an area or style of wine. Each meeting begins with a short talk followed by a tasting of about seven wines. The meeting is very social with chat throughout the tasting on a large range of subjects.

We like everyone to use the same type of glass, so new members will be expected to buy one on joining. We split the cost of the wine between us with the money being collected during the meeting. This is usually around £6 – £7. We always welcome new members.

Please contact Stewart Maugham as shown above.

Walks – London Historic

 

A comfortable walk to explore the historical interest of a particular area, which may include viewing buildings, churches, ruins and open spaces.

Art We Like – Talking about pictures

 

We are a group of people who share their enjoyment of art. At each meeting we have a couple of presentations on art works from any time or place, which are then discussed by the group. No knowledge of art is necessary, just interest and the pleasure of discovery.

 

Drawing and Painting with an iPad

This is a friendly and informal group, hosted by 2 amateur enthusiasts.  We explore various painting/drawing apps  on our iPads, using our own choice of subject matter, such as vegetables/fruit/flowers, photographs, pictures, domestic objects etc. resulting in an absorbing and relaxing activity.

Joint co-ordinator is Anita Nielsen, anitaboje15@gmail.com
