Belper & District

Groups

Welcome to the Groups Page

  • The groups listed below are part of the University of the Third Age (U3A) and are only open to members of the U3A.
  • At the last meeting of the Executive Committee it was proposed and agreed by a majority decision that in future people must become members of Belper & District U3A before accessing taster sessions of groups. Once they have become members, they can then access a taster session of any group unless it is full.
  • For information about membership, fees, how to join & download a Membership Application Form please go to the Welcome Page.
  • We have a variety of activity groups which meet at individual locations and are run by volunteer Co-ordinators.
  • Below you will find a list of the Groups. Please click on the Group Name for further details.
  • For information on how to join any of the groups please contact the Group Co-ordinator, by clicking on the 'mail-to' envelope in the top right-hand corner from within the Group you are interested in.
  • In the event a group is full you will be directed the Activities Coordinator .We can add your name to the group's waiting list. Alternately we are happy to support you in bringing together people to form a new group.

If you are interested in setting up and leading a group or running a short course on a subject that interests you but isn't covered here please contact the Activities Co-ordinator# by clicking the 'mail to' envelope in the top right hand corner of this page.

Groups which are full are highlighted in Grey
