Banbury

Groups

All U3As have interest groups that have evolved over time as members work together in a common field. There is no fixed format or procedures for a group or its leader to follow. Most groups cater for the non-specialists in the subject and having a mixed group in terms of skills and experience is often a bonus. In Banbury, many groups meet in members’ homes, others in local venues such as Amos Court and Stanbridge House or outdoors. The activities are for the enjoyment and benefit of its members so everyone in the group should be responsible for planning the content. Public liability insurance is covered but responsibility for personal safety must rest with the individual member. Some groups, especially those that use rented venues, have to charge a small fee for attendance. Most groups do not have any other costs.

We have an Information Pack for Group Convenors and associated documents that can be downloaded here or from our Links Page
