Groups

Joining a special interest group is great way to meet like-minded people. U3A groups are all about sharing ideas and expertise. The majority of our groups welcome people with all levels of ability whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned pro. There are over 50 groups to choose from so why not take a look at the list below to see if something interests you?

How do I join a group?
To join a group, click on the group name in the list below and you will be taken through to the group page where you will find the name of the Convenor, dates, times and meeting venue. To email the convenor, click on the bird to the right of the page.

Do I have to be a member of Beccles U3A to join a group?
Yes. However, you can take advantage of two taster sessions to see if the group suits you before committing yourself. Out of courtesy to the group, please contact the convenor prior to attending a meeting to let him or her know you are coming.

If you have a query regarding Groups, please contact the Pippa Holliday via the bird. list.
