Brunswick, West Hove & Portslade

Groups

This list of Special Interest Groups was correct before the current restrictions related to Covid-19 but we cannot guarantee that all groups will run or continue to run as described.

For more information about a specific group simply click on the group's name. Any new interest groups will be highlighted in yellow. You can find a Timetable showing which groups meet on which days by scrolling down to the bottom of this page.

We would be particularly pleased to hear from anyone who might be prepared to have a go at starting a Special Interest Group in a new subject area or activity. You don't have to be an 'expert', just an administrative coordinator (although of course anyone able to offer a particular expertise would be especially welcome!). We have a New Groups Team, who would give you lots of help and support to get started, so please let us know....

You can sign up for most groups at any time provided there are spaces available (you don't have to wait until the start of a new U3A year). If you're not yet a member of our U3A we hope to welcome you during 2020/21.

IMPORTANT NOTICE
This page and its associated pages for each interest group describe how they were operating before the current restrictions related to the spread of Covid-19. Unfortunately, in line with other U3As and similar organisations, we have had to curtail some of our activities for the time being but hope to be able to restart them early in 2021. Meanwhile some of the interest groups are still managing to continue some activities using electronic communications and/or socially distanced meetings out of doors. If you would like further details you can contact our Groups Coordinator via the Contacts page. Please check back here from time to time for the latest situation.
