Forum Groups

Please note – these groups are run by volunteers and are for Forum members only. If you need to join the Forum or renew your membership, contact the office.

Bingo Club

Bingo starts at 2pm every Monday at Jubilee Hall, 2 Parsonage Lane EN2 0A. We play five games then have a break for tea/coffee (free), then play five more games. We usually finish about 4pm, which leave time for general socialising. The cost of entry is £1 to cover the cost of the hall. There is a cash prize raffle and the bingo books are £2 for 5 games and £4 for 10 games. We do need to know numbers in advance, so please contact Jim Cantle on 020 8363 4969 if you would like to participate or just for more information.

Coffee Club

The Coffee Club meets in the Skylight Restaurant on the top floor of Pearsons Department store in Enfield Town (they section off an area at the back for us) on the first Wednesday of the month. It runs from 10am until 12 noon and members are welcome to come any time between those times or for the whole period if they wish. Just turn up or contact Sue Scott for further information from on or 020 8368 0861.

Writing Group

We meet on the second Thursday of the month at Enfield Town Library from 10am to 12 noon. Each month we choose a theme for the next meeting and encourage everyone to write something – it may be factual, fiction, autobiographical – there are no rules. Or just listen in on your first visit to the group. One of the great delights of the group is that we have a great chat between readings. For a few examples of our work, visit and for more information, please contact Ruth Serner on
