What is the Friends Study Group?

The Friends Study Group has existed for more than 30 years and has a large collection of presentations prepared by members on a vast diversity of subjects. Currently the group consists of about 15 members who meet during “term” time at the Maritime Museum in Central on Tuesday mornings from 10 am to 1 pm. Currently we have two “terms” each year in Spring and Autumn and each lasts for about 8 weeks.

An overall main topic is usually agreed upon by group members and each particpant chooses the subject on which they wish to make a presentation. Much of the fun is in researching one’s chosen subject and then preparing a presentation usually with Powerpoint or similar programme lasting between 30 and 45 minutes. Normally there are two presentations each week and we usually have an optional lunch nearby to continue discussion and chat.

We are an enthusiastic, amateur group who enjoy learning from others’ research and presentations. We are, we believe, an uncritical, friendly audience and hope you will consider joining us. The next topic can be found advertised on this site and in the FFF. If you have any questions please contact Patrick Moss at [email protected]. and we will try to tell you much fun the Study Group can be.
