Shepway & District

Groups

U3A subject groups are self-organising, and, unless otherwise stated, meet on a regular basis in members' own homes. They each have a leader, who may or may not be an expert in the subject to be studied, but who is willing to do some of the organisation.

Meetings may take place weekly, fortnightly or monthly, depending on the subject and members' preferences, with normal breaks for Christmas and other holidays. We ask 30p for tea and coffee when meeting in a member's house. The cost for meetings in the Red Lion, Hythe is £1.70 to include tea/coffee and biscuits. Events at the Sports Centre, Hythe cost £2. A contribution is made towards petrol when cars are shared.

The subject groups which are currently running are listed below. Please click on a group name to find out more.

If you are interested in joining any of our groups, or would like to start up another group on any subject, please contact the Group Co-ordinator by telephone or email:
Telephone: 07938 999 015
Email: Contact

You will be advised whether places are available and given some details about the group. Your name will be passed to the group leader. The group leader will contact you and make arrangements for you to join. If there are no places at the present time, your name will be added to a waiting list and you will be advised when a vacancy arises.
The telephone will be staffed during normal working hours, with answerphone service outside these times. Please leave a message. Please await our reply. We endeavour to answer within 24 hours, if relevant to Shepway & District U3A.
Note: to join any of these groups, you must be a paid up member of the Shepway & District U3A. This is an insurance requirement as we are affiliated to the Third Age Trust

Please remember to keep in touch with the Group Leader about meetings and let the Leader know if you are going to be absent.
