Member Kevin Stock said: '˜We have over 80 interest groups and they vary depending on what skills people have and what people want to learn or do.
'˜We have language groups, I myself run two game groups and then we have our bus trippers who organise to go to places like Brighton.'

He added: '˜It is a way for people to get out of the house, learn new things, teach skills to othersÂ and socialise with new friends.'
