Welling

Groups

Groups are central to the U3A concept. They enable people to come together to share and develop their learning by offering activities that aim to satisfy the widest possible range interests. They are self-run by the Group members who decide what they are going to do and how they are going to operate.

Welling U3A already have approximately 30 groups with several others awaiting leadership or accommodation. Most groups meet in members’ homes, while some groups use external accommodation. In that case they may make an additional charge to cover the costs of refreshments or hall hire.

An alphabetical list of all existing Groups can be found below.

Some Groups may be limited in size if held in peoples' homes. For further information please contact the Group Co-ordinator.

If a Group is full and there is no waiting list, you can start one! For help and information, just contact the Group Co-ordinator.

If you find that no Group caters for your interest, the Group Coordinator is always happy to receive new ideas or to help you set up a new Interest/Study group.

The table below contains a full list of ALL our groups currently running:
