GROUPS

Updated 09 Sept 2021

As you know, our groups are beginning to restart or to move from Zoom to live meetings. As we have always said you should not feel obliged to move to live meetings – only when you feel ready. It is important not to place any pressure on people to resume activities they do not feel comfortable to undertake.

Cycling, Ethnic Eating 1, Flower Arranging, History, Luncheon, Natural History, Philosophy, Photography and Walking groups are some of those that have restarted.

George Lange is trying to restart the Badminton group and the Table Tennis group is looking for new members. You can contact the coordinators of these groups, or indeed any of our groups, via the Groups Page on our web site by clicking the Groups link below.

Interest groups are the engines of life-long learning in the U3A, meeting regularly to study subjects of common interest. The group coordinator takes responsibility for organising meetings, which run without distinction between teachers and learners. Members share their knowledge and experience and enjoyment is the prime motive.

Scroll down to find individual group pages, what groups do, and where and when they meet. In most cases, you can email the coordinator from the group page.

If you have an interest that is not yet represented, it is likely that others will share this interest. So think of starting a new group and contact the Groups Secretary for help. Equally, if a group for your interest is already full please consider setting up an additional group.

If you are interested in joining a group you must contact the individual Group coordinators in advance, by going to the group's individual web page, and at the top right of which, below the logo, select 'Click Here to Send Message'.

Contact for Loan of U3A Equipment

Glenfield U3A has some technical equipment (Windows 10 laptop, Blue Tooth Speaker, Projector) available to be borrowed by Group Coordinators to facilitate their group activities, as needed. These are kept by Alan Hodkinson. To request their loan please contact Alan via Contacts page of this web site
