THESE ARE OUR GROUPS - see list at bottom of page.

If you are interested in organising, or helping to organise a group (you don't have to be an expert and help is available) please contact the Groups co-ordinator. You do need to be a member of the U3A first (contact the Membership Secretary via the Contacts Page)
