TS Member Recommended: Links To More Outdoor Leisure Websites
« on: November 26, 2012, 10:33:31 AM »
 
As per title - suggest & promote other outdoor leisure & interest related websites for TS members and readers to visit.

TS Top Tip: Include the website name in the subject line of your post to help search engines :)




www.swindonivc.org.uk - "Swindon IVC was founded in 1980 and is a social club whose members organise activities for each other. These can range from meals, walks, sporting activities, pub/cinema/theatre trips etc. Anything in fact that one person wants to do and invite fellow members along to. Weekly events include badminton, table tennis and club night. Membership normally is around 60 people, whose ages range from 22 to 66. Most members live in and around Swindon.

Swindon IVC is part of a national organisation, which was set up for people who are new to an area, or want to expand their social circle after living in an area for some time. There are approximately 5,000 IVC members who belong to the forty-five clubs in the UK, which form the Association of Inter-Varsity Clubs (AIVC)"

www.swindonia.blogspot.co.uk - "Hidden Swindon - Nature is flourishing in the nooks and crannies around the old part of Swindon. The aim of this blog is to illustrate a different Swindon where the 'magic roundabout' plays no part. An enchanting Swindon that can only be discovered on foot. A place of underground springs and streams, ancient hedgerows, footpaths, copses, lakes, and beautiful parkland. If you look a little more closely you will see Swindon is built on sacred ground"

Talkswindon members who enjoy walking or cycling or come to think of it ....  eating, drinking, books, more eating, tennis, theatre trips, films, more eating, music or simply socialising with new people might be interested in Swindon IVC.

Each of the clubs 60 members are encouraged to organise 3 events of their choice each year, which in theory results in 180 events. In practice some members organise a lot more and others choose to attend but not organise any. The club has a nice family feel to it and is definitely not a singles/dating club although a few members have met their partners through the club. The website is worth a look.

If anyone would like more details, just let me know.

I must draw you to this blog compiled by June Jackson:

http://swindonia.blogspot.co.uk/

June has compiled a series of journeys around favourite places in the Swindon area and all are beautifully illustrated with images. She stopped in 2010 - I think that she had reached the limit of capacity for the blog.
