Our programme of café-style discussion groups on Saturday mornings is back.

The discussion groups are for Cambridge people to come together and openly discuss life & community in our city.

Each month we invite a speaker to introduce a local topic for discussion. We want discussions to cover the whole spectrum of issues that affect us all – including community, work, politics, health, economics, life style and culture.

It there is something that you would like to discuss at future group meetings, please let us know.
