Faversham and District U3A – Interest Groups

All Faversham and District U3A Interest Groups have been suggested and are organised by F&D U3A members. They are self-managing and led by an Interest Group Co-ordinator, who may or may not be experienced or expert in the field, but has a genuine interest in the establishment and success of the group and is willing to undertake an organisational role. All co-ordinators are U3A members, volunteers and not paid teachers. It must be stressed that these are shared interest groups, not courses and the groups themselves decide what they do.

Crocheting You must be a paid up member of Faversham and District U3A to join any Interest Group – this is an insurance requirement. All groups are free to join although there may be some cost attached, such as a shared payment for the hire of a venue and a cost for any materials provided for and used in the group. Where possible, interest groups should be held in members’ homes or an agreed free meeting place. However, where this is not possible, due to the nature of the group, a venue might be hired. Regularity of group meetings is arranged according to how each group chooses. It can be weekly, fortnightly, monthly - the group decides. Cost of refreshments should be determined by the group, when meeting in a member’s home, but must cover costs.

Turner Centre If you are interested in joining one of our groups, or would like to start a group of your own please email our Group Co-ordinator. You will then be advised whether places are available and your contact details passed to the Group Co-ordinator who will contact you with details.

Colour coding on the groups: The YELLOW highlight indicates that the group has spaces. The DARKER GREY indicates that the group is currently full.

All groups take place in Faversham unless otherwise indicated.
