Groups

For more information about a group, U3A members have a brochure which tells them how to contact groups directly. While we will do our best to answer general questions from non-members about our groups, we are unable to provide more detailed information than is on this website.

Queries about membership can be sent to our Membership Secretary by using the CONTACTS key. Current annual subscription fee is £15 with a £5 reduction if we can communicate with you be email. Members can join as many groups as they wish if there are vacancies without paying any additional fee. Members can also apply to join Stanway U3A groups that have vacancies without needing to apply for Stanway U3A membership. If you would like to attend one of our monthly talks as a non-member, find out how by using the General Enquiries option on the CONTACTS button.

To suggest a new group, please use the CONTACT key at the top of the page to e-mail the Groups' Organiser via Interest Group Enquiries.

Only the day of the week is shown below for meetings but most groups meet monthly or fortnightly.

When you have looked at what our Interest Groups have to offer, see more about us on Facebook by using the link on the right. And don't forget to 'like' us!
