Note to Convenors re Data Protection

Following a recent interest group email being sent to a non-group member, can all Convenors be extra vigilant when distributing group information. While not a data protection issue, if you have an members’ email address for another reason, it can be annoying to receive any none relevant emails.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter

What is an interest group?

Interest groups form the heart of the work of U3A.

An interest group is simply two or more members of the U3a who decide to pursue an interest together

Currently Featuring Photography Group (Click Link to got to Group Page)

What has happened in our area so far?

Although we have only been running since the end of July 2018,we are already approaching 300 members and a good range of groups which have started which are listed below. We also have some groups where there is some initial interest, but they have not yet got started. Some groups are doing so well that we may be looking to set up a second group looking at the same theme!

Joining an interest group

All our current groups are open to all who have paid their part year £15 membership. Members can attend as many groups as they like. At each monthly meeting there is an opportunity for new members to join and also to find out more about the groups which are starting.

A Group Convenor

Each group will be facilitated by a convenor who is a volunteer from the group. Each group decides how often it wants to meet e.g. weekly, monthly, fortnightly and where it will meet.
If you are not a member you may attend up to two meetings only to see if this is for you!
New groups

Notes on Convenors Meeting 310120

We are always on the lookout for new groups.
Recently we have started a Calligraphy group which is proving popular.

If you are interested in starting a completely new group, please let us know.
There has been some interest in Green Bowling, Pub Lunches/Dinning Out and Photography Groups.

THE GROUPS HIGHLIGHTED IN PALE YELLOW ARE THE NEW GROUP
