Groups Information

Would you like to start a group for your favourite activity or hobby?
For example we do not at present have a Learn French group or a Flower Arranging workshop, how about a Dance group!
The list is vast. However we do have a lot of new members who could come up with some new ideas for us to occupy our time.

Our Group Coordinator Mary can help you set up the group, and give you all the guidance and help you need to enjoy facilitating a group to add to our wide range of activities.
For more information either have a chat with Mary at the open meetings or send her a message by clicking the blue bird in the right hand column. >>>.

Our Groups can cover both 'Study' topics and those more 'Leisure' orientated. Nothing is laid down, you can have a Group for any subject you like! Choose one already running and just join in, or suggest a subject or leisure activity you would like to see covered and we will explore that possibility.

Don't be afraid that, if you suggest a particular Group, you will be expected to lead it, or even to be an expert on the subject. Of course, if you are an expert, or even an expert enthusiast, that's great! Once set up, you could simply be the 'Contact' for the Group if you like. It's all about sharing knowledge, enthusiasm,and experience really, not about being lectured at.

The only requirement is that you must be a fully paid-up member of Eastleigh District U3A to be able to take part in any group meetings or activities.

Please be aware that members participating in the activities of any Group do so at their own risk.

Please also note that where a group meets in a member’s home it is National U3A Policy to consider that that meeting is taking place in a public place and hence there is a no smoking policy.

As you can see, we have a wide range of Groups catering for all tastes, these include:-

10 pin bowling, Gardening, Kurling, Ping Pong, Skittles, Super Sleuths & Two Walking Groups.

Singing for fun, Crafts, Photography & Poetry.
