  • This is the easiest place to join a group. The link will take you to the Beacon Members' Portal
  • You will need to validate yourself with your name; membership number; email address, and postcode
  • You will then see the list of groups with a brief description; contact details and whether the group is open or full with a waiting list
  • If you opt to join a group the group leader will get an email message, even if you go on to a waiting list!

Alternatively contact the Group Leader by clicking on the Group Name below.

SETTING UP A GROUP
A number of groups have waiting lists and for a membership of our size we very much need and welcome more groups.
To start a group need not be demanding. You do not need to be knowledgeable about the subject – the “leader” learns along with the rest. On the other hand you may have skills and knowledge we could benefit from.
If you could start a group please contact the Groups Coordinator (see ‘Contact’ above). Alternatively, click on this link ==> Guidance for Group Leaders

Calling all potential Group Leaders
Do you need inspiration? Are you short of ideas? Don't despair! Take a look at OVERSIGHTS - the U3A Site Builder's web site. And if East Grinstead doesn't fit the bill you will find hundreds of other possibilities - and exciting ideas for starting your own group as well. Just visit Oversights and then navigate through GROUPS. You will be presented with several ways of finding nearby U3A s and any number of groups to whet your appetites! Good hunting!!
