subgroups

LINK subgroups are special-interest groups that meet on a regular basis.

We are crafters, readers, swimmers, sportswomen, lovers of gourmet food, and much more.

Whatever your interest, there is probably a subgroup for you, and if not you can always set up your own!

Currently LINK offers the following groups:

Badminton

A group of joyful and lovely ladies play badminton for relaxation on two courts at Svanemøllehallen every Monday from 6-7 pm. We have coaching by Mikael every second week to improve our techniques and we love these sessions. We also hold traditional Christmas and End-of-the Season dinners which are a lot of fun.

Do you love to play badminton and you consider you play quite ok? Then come and have a trial session with us! Please contact Liina Meiner on meinerid@gmail.com for more information.

Book Clubs

Morning Book Club

The Morning Book Club usually meets on the last Tuesday of the month. We're a very friendly group completely without literary pretensions but we all enjoy reading and chatting about books. 

 If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact Polly at polly.raine@hotmail.it

Evening Book Club

Our monthly meeting of the Evening Book Club is either on Tuesday, 14th or 21st November. The book we are currently reading is "The Crossing Places" by Elly Griffiths. 

Evening Book Club reading list for season 2017-2018.

The Evening Book Club is perfect for working LINK members and new members are always welcome. Just email Liina Meiner via bookclub_evening@linkdenmark.com.

Bridge

Come join us and start to learn how to play bridge. We are a lovely group of tea drinking girls who meet once a week at my house, normally on a Monday afternoon at 3 pm, to learn the basics of bridge. We are still working on the concepts and underlying principles of this fabulous game and are welcoming beginners into our group. Obviously, there is a lot of chat and sometimes cake and there has been talk of wine! 

Email me at carolyneddie@hotmail.com for more information.

Café Call

Café Call is a relaxed, no RSVP required, monthly visit to a café in the Copenhagen area. It is a chance for members old and new to get together and chat in a friendly atmosphere and is held on the first Tuesday of every month.

For the November Café Call, please join us on Tuesday 7th November  at 10.30 at Tranquebar, Borgergade 14, 1300 København K.     

This lovely and unusual Café calls itself a "travel bookshop and Café "which as well as selling some really interesting and varied books, also sells bags, scarves and all kinds of interesting items. Tables cannot be booked, but usually on a Tuesday at 10.30 it is fairly quiet, so don't leave it too late to arrive!

Your contact will be Polly Raine on 28422732 if you have any questions. As always, look for the Danish flags on the table. Hope to see you there!

Dog Walking Group

We meet up to walk our dogs every Saturday at 10 am at the yellow house/ Svenske hus in Bernstorffsparken. We then walk around the park chatting whilst our dogs run around. The walk usually lasts about an hour but it can be shorter or longer depending on how much time each person has.

 If you are new to the group please text me, Bettina, to let me know just in case of delays/cancellations: 20729338. If there is interest we might be able to walk at different times too.

Regarding pet sitters: there is an open forum to help. If you need advice regarding pets, we can help each other, not just for sitting but also where to go/what to do if you have a pet related matter. We have a closed Facebook page you can join as this is where we post messages/changes etc. For more information, please contact Bettina via texiejen@hotmail.com.

English Conversation

The English Conversation group is a fun and relaxed way to practice and improve your English speaking and listening skills. We are a very international group and welcome new members, and all levels of English. We meet at a cafe in Copenhagen K on Wednesdays from 10.30 - 12.00.  As well as having a general friendly chat, we usually have a topic to discuss. 

Some of our newest members are keen to really work on their English, so we are currently meeting weekly. Our upcoming meetings are November 1, 8, 15, 22, 29. There’s no obligation to attend weekly, but the opportunity is there for those who’d like it. 

To find out more about the group, and to be added to the email list, contact Jane Tait at jmptait@aol.com . 

French/English Conversation

We meet every two weeks at one of our member’s homes to practise talking for one hour in French and one hour in English on a pre-agreed topic.

German Conversation

The German Conversation group will meet on Thursday, 16th of November at 10.30am at Coffee Industry Sweden, Fiolstraede 20, 1171 Copenhagen. We hope there are some women interested to join this group, don't be hesitant to come - all levels are welcome, from native speakers to those just learning German.

If you want to know more about it, please contact Kerstin Hansen on murmel25@yahoo.de. 

Movie Club

The Movie Club meets once a month to watch an entertaining movie in good company (usually Thursday evenings around 6-7pm). The choice of film is decided following members’ suggestions, keeping a nice balance between commercial and arthouse movies.

If you are interested in joining the Movie Club, please send an email to Susan Burleigh via movieclub@linkdenmark.com and she will add you to the emailing list.

Mindful and More

LINK's mindfulness subgroup, Mindful and More, provides a space to co-create a more mindful, calm, and joyful way of being. We help each other to connect and create a loving, positive energy,  a place for us to help each other be in the moment, without judgement or wanting to change what is, but just letting go. Each time we meet we will discuss, share and practice different approaches to accessing and supporting mindfulness.

Mums of Boarders

We are a group of mums who all have children boarding at school outside Denmark. If you have a child at boarding school or are seriously considering it as an option for the future, come along to a meet up.

Music & Movement

Music & Movement class is held every Friday from 10-10.45 and is open to all pre-schoolers and their parents or carers.  Join us for singing, music, instruments and stories! No need to book, just turn up! Keep your eyes open for more details via ad hoc email and Facebook. For more details see the Kids Korner page.

Needle Nutz

Needle Nutz is a subgroup for all those who enjoy knitting, crochet , needlework, any other kind of craft work or even clothing repairs and alterations. We meet once  a month, on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, between 1-4 pm, alternating between Christine Green's in Hellerup and Gerd Nijs's also in Hellerup.

 In November, we meet at Gerd's house on Wednesday 8th November.

So come along for a few hours with your project and supplies and enjoy tea, coffee, biscuits and show us your handiwork, exchange ideas and have a good chat with friends. If you are interested in attending or need further information, please email Christine at  seejgreen@yahoo.com  or Gerd at  gerd_nijs@hotmail.com respectively. It would be very helpful to know by the Monday before each meeting who will be attending, so we have some idea of numbers. Once we have a list of interested people we will send out a group mail prior to each meeting.

Out to Lunch

The Out to Lunch subgroup is a great way to meet up with old friends and perhaps make new! It is open to all members. The group usually meets up on the last Friday of the month at 12.30pm at a restaurant in the city centre making it easily accessible to most members. The restaurants are casual and reasonably priced.

Walking Groups

Friday City Walk

Are you interested in exploring Copenhagen’s streets, parks, and harbors while you walk and join other marvelous ladies sharing experiences and networking opportunities? Then the Friday City Walk is for you.

Our goal is to walk 10,000 steps within 1 hour and 30 minutes. That sometimes requires us to walk briskly, but we are willing to stop, take a picture, or share knowledge about our surroundings. We swap events, opportunities, and moral support. At the end, we finish for coffee and/or lunch. 

We usually start at the Stork Fountain in the middle of Stroget at 11 am. However, sometimes we will start from other locations to expand our horizons. So be sure to make your intentions known by contacting Debi Lancaster at debilancaster@mac.com.  

Walking in the Deer Park

Once a week, every Thursday, a group of ladies meet at the Deer Park (Dyrehaven) in Klampenborg for a good two hour walk round the park, usually stopping for a quick coffee and snack half way round (we bring our own).

Anyone is welcome to join us and often a dog or two walk with us. We usually go out whatever the weather after emailing the night before (although probably not in torrential rain!). We meet at Klampenborg station at 10.30 am under the Big 'S' sign up on the bridge over the tracks.

If you are interested or want more information, please contact either Christine at seejgreen@yahoo.com or Jane at jmptait@aol.com.

Zumba Fitness

Come join the party on the last Saturday of every month. Zumba takes the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. The class is from 9.30 to 10.30 am at Kildeskovshallen, in the room Garderobe. November 25 is our next class. We hope to see you there!

 If you'd like to join the party, please contact Fausta Olsen at ftolsen2013@gmail.com.
