Cam, Dursley & District

Groups

Interest Groups are an essential element of the U3A. They are self sufficient, setup and are run by members for members. Of course, you need to become a member Cam, Dursley and District U3A before you can join a group. Our current Interest Groups are listed below but there is always the potential to add a new one!

New groups are highlighted with a yellow background, full groups with a grey background.

Each group page provides further information.You'll find groups meet at different times and different frequencies. Simply contact the Group leader for the latest information via the blue bird on the right hand side of each group page.

If you cannot see anything that interests you, could you help get an Interest Group going? If so why not Contact our Groups Coordinator now. Share your knowledge and skills - that's what U3A is all about!

Group leaders: if you’d like to post notices of events or add notes/photographs to your group page, please contact Graham via the Website help button on the Contact page.
