Canvey Thameside

GROUPS

Alan Browne, who is in charge of the Community Room at Morrisons, emailed me to say they had been advised to close the meeting room until 1st June due to the Covid 19 virus. This obviously makes sense due to the large range and ages of groups using it. This means, if (a big if given no one really knows how things will go) the room does re-open on the 1st June, our groups can start holding their meetings again.

The U3A’s aim is to further educate and stimulate retired members of the community.

We acknowledge that many people retire with a lifetime of knowledge and experience which they should be encouraged to share with their neighbours.

Our groups aim to satisfy the widest range of interests: educational, cultural, recreational, physical and social.

Canvey Thameside group meetings are held at various locations within this area. Group activities are chosen by members.

In keeping with the U3A principle of "self help and co-operation", all group activities are led by a member of the Group and each Group has a Leader or Convenor.

New Groups may be formed at any time. If there is a demand for a specific interest, say by two or three members, the Groups Coordinator, Linda, can put these interested members in touch and hopefully a new group will be born! So make sure you let Linda know of your interests.

The groups list is constantly changing and it is advertised each month to members in our newsletter which is distributed at our monthly meetings and groups updates are show on our notice board and this website. Linda also has tables set up at our meetings to enable members to make enquiries and sign up for any of the groups that have started. Members can also put ideas forward to Linda concerning groups you would be interested in joining or starting.

We have a Groups and Events Calendar on the Diary page for you to check upcoming events and group meeting dates.

For further details on the groups below please contact our Groups Coordinator Linda via our Contact page or follow the Group Convenor contact link on the individual group's page.
