About the European Group

European Special Interest Group

The European Group, as it is now known (from January 2012), was originally formed as the South West European Group in May 2000. There was a previous European Group which ran for a number of years from its formation in 1986.

The change of name has been brought about by the increasing interest in the whole of Europe, and rather than restricting the group to South Westen Europe, it has been expanded to cover the majority of European countries.

England, Scotland and Ireland are already covered by other Special Interest Groups.

The group now covers 45 countries in Europe, being: 

Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan

Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria,

Croatia, Cyprus, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France,

Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy,

Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg,

North Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro,

Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania,

San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland,

Ukraine, Vatican City.

Meetings are held regularly at May St Bayswater on designated Sundays.

Bring along your questions and research successes.

Next Meeting

Topic: Join us in Unit 4.  First of all we are going to test our knowledge of European geography and history with a quiz, followed by a time for sharing successes, and helping each other solve their mysteries. Also bring along and share successes and brickwalls and let's see if we can knock them down.
