ADVICE FOR RESTARTING INTEREST GROUPS
The Third Age Trust have published updated guidelines for restarting groups. Click link ON RHS of this page.

We have more than 70 Groups within Ashtead U3A. They are run in a variety of ways to suit the Group members. The styles can vary from fully shared learning, with members taking the lead in turn, to instructional learning and several variations in between.
Group meetings are usually held in members’ homes or in local meeting rooms. Any costs, such as hire of a hall etc., are shared between Group members.

Below is the current list of Groups with meeting dates and frequency. Click on the Group name to view an attached page giving more details including, where present, a link to communicate with the Group contact. Once you become a member, full details with telephone numbers of Group contacts will be provided.

NEW GROUPS either being formed or just started and hence have SPACE FOR MORE MEMBERS, HAVE A YELLOW BACKGROUND

GROUPS WITH SPACE FOR MORE MEMBERS, HAVE A WHITE BACKGROUND

GROUPS WHICH ARE FULL, HAVE A GREY BACKGROUND

Some interest has been shown in having a Sunday Lunch group. This has been successful in other u3a groups. So far, although we have some enthusiastic diners, we do not have anyone who has come forward to be the Group Leader. If anyone is willing to take on this role, please contact Eileen Merchant at Groups Co-ordinator

If the Group you are interested in is full, please contact the Groups Co-ordinator as there may be others interested in forming an additional group.
In all cases, for more information and to start or join a entirely new Group, please contact the Groups Co-ordinator
