Interest Groups

There are over 40 interest groups varying in size from three to almost forty members. Each one has a convenor who leads the group’s activities but each member is encouraged to contribute ideas.
We have a link co-ordinator who can be contacted by group co-ordinators with any queries they may have. You can email the Group co-ordinator using the form on the Contacts page.
We are happy for people who are thinking about joining us to come for a 'taster session' and visit groups on a trial basis. However, if you wish to continue to be part of a group then please become a member of our U3A.

Groups will often meet in the town and share cars when travelling to different villages, please be prepared to pay £1 towards the cost of the petrol or, when travelling more than 10 miles, £2 should be offered.
Many of the group meetings will be held in peoples’ homes and a charge of 50p will be made to cover expenses, including tea and biscuits.

Click on an individual group below to see more information. There is a Timetable Summary at the bottom of the group list. If the group you wish to join or is full or you have a scheme for a new interest group then consider starting a new one! You will be able to offer it through the web site and the newsletter.
