Dart Valley

Interest Groups

Please refer to groups section on this website to see which groups are meeting up, physically or on Zoom and which groups are suspended until further notice.

With some 39 interest groups and 510 members there is something for everyone - but there is always room for more.

Interest groups meet on a regular basis and are run by a Group Convener. Members of the group pay any expenses as in hall hire or transport. Usually coffee/tea is contributed by the members of the group. Some groups meet in members houses, others in local halls. Some, as in Walking, don't have a regular meeting place.

The essence of u3a is that learning is available to all and that members, who want to share their knowledge, set up an interest group and become a Group Convener. Those that want to learn can be part of that group - whatever the subject.
