'Founded in 1979 by a group of quilting enthusiasts and has grown from a founding membership of 300 to over 6,500 individual members today ...

The five special interest groups cater for special interests with challenges, meetings, retreats and summer schools.'

'Groups which meet and converse in the UK and beyond, usually gathering once every month. The event was founded in London, UK by Dr Scott Campbell in 1999, for all those interested in science, history, psychology, philosophy, investigative journalism and how to examine extraordinary claims of all types. A speaker (or number of speakers) is invited each month to present a topic of interest, which is followed by a discussion in a relaxed and friendly pub atmosphere.'

'The Sussex Beekeepers’ Association caters for those who live in Brighton, East Grinstead and East Sussex who keep bees or who would like to start beekeeping. There are five local Divisions each of which have their own website ... The Divisions have meetings which help train people in beekeeping ... In spring and summer the meetings tend to be at apiaries, which gives members a chance to handle bees and beehives ... Beekeeping is essentially a practical craft so it is easier to learn by doing it.  You need the company of experienced friends, and the Divisions provide this.  You never stop learning about beekeeping.'
