Brackley U3A Interest Groups
Here you will find information about Brackley U3A interest groups. The details (Name, When and Where) of each group is listed in the Group List table below.
In addition click on Brackley U3A Calendar to find our Calendar of regular meetings. Choose the Agenda tab of the calendar to get a day by day list of coming activities starting from today
You can join as many interest groups as you find time for!
If there are other topics not covered, why not start your own group? There is help available to get you going. If you would like to run a Group or make suggestions about existing or new Groups, Ian Nixon, our Groups Co-ordinator will be pleased to hear from you.
Each Group is self-sufficient and independent and if costs are involved in renting rooms then those members pay a small amount each to cover the costs.
Photographs of recent group events can be seen on the individual group page, as well as in the Gallery.
