GROUPS

ALL GROUP ACTIVITIES HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

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'. This is to ensure spaces are available.

Contact for Loan of U3A Equipment

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

Groups Recruiting
