Cambourne & District

Groups

Cambourne and District U3a is relatively new, and is just in the process of setting the groups set up. But to whet the appetite, the ones listed below are already set up, or in the process of formation. Many more groups have been suggested, some of which will need a leader, some not.

If you have signed up at a meeting for information about any course, you will be contacted shortly - via email if you have given us your email address, or by phone. Note that giving us your email address or phone number on your membership application or a survey form is taken as permission to contact you by these means for the purpose of running the U3A, but we will not use it for other purposes. If you wish to change or remove your email address or your phone number(s), please contact us via the 'general enquiry' form on the contact page.

Get in touch

To get in touch with the leader for a particular group, use the form on the web page for that group (if there is one), or click on the 'bird' icon on this page and complete the online form. This form can also be used if you have suggestions for additional groups, especially if you are able to lead such a group!

New Groups

A new group has been suggested, with a possible leader, at least to start with. Initially it would be called the 'Current Affairs Discussion Group', but that could be changed according to the direction the group wishes to take. It will be a monthly meeting, on a day to be specified but not Friday, at a mid-afternoon time for one and a half hours; the venue would be decided once the numbers are known.

Topics for discussion could be driverless cars; the state of the nation; b****t; immigration; T***p; renewable energy; best telly; etc etc.
It is not intended to be a really serious group, but to take a light-hearted look at various topics of public interest, and we guess certain ground rules may have to be laid down to avoid fisticuffs at dawn! Please get in touch to show your interest and we will move this forward.

Would anyone like to be part of a new U3A Bird Club? If so, please get in touch by clicking the bird icon!

Finally, there are some other potential groups in which people have expressed interest, but for which we don't yet have a facilitator/group leader. These include

  • British and European History of the 20th Century. 6 keen members.
  • Chess
  • Genealogy
  • Painting
  • Table Tennis
  • Victorian History
  • Wildlife Walks
  • Wine Tasting

Meeting Times

Unless stated otherwise in the descriptions, morning group meetings normally start at 10:00 am, and afternoon meetings at 2:00 pm.

Remember to take part in any of our groups, you must be a current member of the Cambourne & District U3A.
