The following ideas have been suggested for setting up new groups:-
This will require instructions so if anyone has experience in this form of dancing could they please let me know. Alternatively, initially it could be learnt from videos. This group would need a venue.
This would require some experience of playing. I have investigated how this could be set up and organised.
Some knowledge would be required and would be suitable for a home group. Ideas on how to organise a language group could be obtained from other WWU3A language groups.
If you are interested in any of these suggestions please contact Groups Co-ordinator or see your latest newsmail.

Help promote the Big Knit
We need help to promote the Big Knit across Wiltshire to get people knitting and crocheting the little hats so we can reach our target of 50,000 little hats by the end of July. We’ve already sent 25,000 off and have another 3, 000 in Devizes waiting to go but we still need more.
We’re looking for about 20 people in different areas of Wiltshire who could put up posters, engage with knitting/craft groups, visit WIs, share on social media or do anything else to make this happen. We can provide all the publicity materials and patterns required and what we’d ask is if each person could aim to get 1,000 little hats for us.
For every hat we provide, we get 25p so if we reach our target that will be £12,500 which will go directly to supporting older people in Wiltshire & Swindon.
If you’re up for the challenge, please do let me know! Thank you!
