Activities

The Club has a wide range of activities led by members in a variety of venues. There is always something happening…we hope you find something that interests you and look forward to seeing members and future members at our activities. We welcome and encourage guests to come to three HIWC activities, including the Monthly General Meeting, to try us out and see if we are what you need.

If you would like to go to an activity, please contact us.

We are proud to offer you the following Club Activities:

Bookworms – A get-together once a month to discuss a chosen book. Discussions are fun and low key.

Brain Food – Informal discussions on a wide range of topical subjects and the chance to learn more about the home countries of many of our members.

Bridge – For all abilities, using both ACOL and Standard American, and played fortnightly at each other’s houses.

Buttons & Bytes – A mutual support group aimed at getting to grips with modern technology – no expertise needed.

Cooking together – “More about the preparation than the eating” – here is your chance to share your favourite recipes in the kitchen

Country Walks – Every month a different 4-5 mile walk and boots, wellies or other suitable footwear is recommended.
