Other Interests


These are interests shared by more than one member, and which are regularly discussed on club nights.

Aviation With a retired BA Pilot and a retired Air Traffic Controller in the club we have always had up to date and accurate information on current aviation events. It inevitably remains a frequent subject.
Boating Several club members enjoy boating.

Terry owns "Dulcinea", a 27' Nauticus, plus a share in a narrow boat.

Andy has "Amberel, a Viking 24, plus an inflatable tender. (The eagle eyed will note that the picture is not a Viking 24, but a previous "Amberel, a Viking 26).

Rod has a boat on a trailer, but it's been out of the water for so long that some of us suspect it will never get its bottom wet again.

Phil has a canoe.

Films/TV At least two club members have an encyclopaedic knowledge of films and TV.
Geocaching Andy enjoys geocaching. This is usually combined with walking in some lovely parts of the UK and abroad, but also involves some more extreme aspects such as caving, abseiling, climbing trees, visiting islands, etc.
Photography Most of the members enjoy photography. Some take it very seriously.
Railways Several members are railway and train enthusiasts, especially steam. Here is Steve on the footplate of a locomotive.

Science Fiction  
Walking Several members enjoy walking - Dartmoor, the Peak District, the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and similar.
