Walking group
This small walking group (usually about 10 people) meets Saturday mornings at 10.30am by the café in Grovelands Park (Broad Walk entrance), N21 3DA. We do a 40 minute walk around the park and a have a chat in the café afterwards. Everyone is welcome so please feel free to join in.
Ring Monica on 020 8886 6514 for more information.

Writing Group
We meet on the third Friday of the month upstairs in the Dugdale Centre from 10am to 11.45 – or until we stop talking – 12 noon max! Each month we read a short piece of our own writing followed by a discussion. This is a really sociable, friendly and interesting group. Topics are suggested each month by group members. We would be delighted to welcome you. Sometimes some of us have not had time to write and simply tell fellow members about something of interest, or just listen and then join in with the discussion. So do consider joining us – we would love to meet you.
For more information, please call Christine Whetstone on 020 8805 1180.

Poetry Group
We are Forum members who come together each month to read and talk about poems, some well-known, some written by us spiced with some music. It is a very sociable time and we all enjoy it. So, why not some along and try us out? We meet in the Community Room, Town Library on the fourth Thursday of each month 10.15 – 11.45am sharp!

Genealogy Group

This group is for any Forum member who wishes to explore their family history. You can just drop in for a chat or to check some of our reference books/magazines. Because of the popularity of the group, we are now making appointments for members to have 1:1 sessions with one of our volunteer advisors. Visit the group to talk about your needs and to book a 1:1 session.

We are also organising afternoons/days out to go to talks or to visit archives. Sign up for these events at the group. We normally meet fortnightly on Saturday afternoons 2.30pm – 4.30pm at the Dugdale Centre, 39 London Road, Enfield Town, EN2 6DS.
