Pitlochry & District

Groups

One of the U3A's founding principles is that we are a group of people where all members take part in the process of informally educating and being educated through mutually sharing, with other members, our skills and knowledge we have all acquired during our lifetimes.

The Pitlochry & District U3A is fortunate to have many active members who have founded or now lead a number of small groups. Attending or organising a small group gives members an opportunity to know one another and to gain understanding into some of the rich backgrounds that our members have, as well as sharing our own experience with others.

A list of these small groups is given below, together with the usual meeting times.These are organised in such a way as to allow members to attend several groups if they so wish.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ADDITIONAL GROUPS TO THOSE LISTED, MAY BE AVAILABLE SHOULD THERE BE DEMAND.

WE REALLY DO WELCOME EXISTING OR NEW MEMBERS OFFERING THEMSELVES TO LEAD A GROUP,SHOULD THEY HAVE A HOBBY OR SOME EXPERTISE IN ANY SUBJECT UNDER THE SUN.

THERE HAVE BEEN ONE OR TWO VENUE CHANGES FOR SOME OF THE GROUPS, SO ASK A COMMITTEE MEMBER IF YOU ARE IN DOUBT.

Please note that there are no fees involved, though we do ask that members contribute where tea and coffee are provided. Some classes may require members to purchase textbooks.

Times & venues of classes may vary. Classes may be added to, or deleted from the lists below
