Guernsey

Groups

  • Groups highlighted in Yellow are the groups that have already started. Please contact the convenors, via the pigeon for more information on days and times.

We are extremely fortunate to have a wide range of interest groups to suit those who are creative, those who want to keep their brain challenged, those who enjoy being physically active and those who just want to have fun.
The groups are run by very enthusiastic and talented people who have the strange name of "convenors", but don't let that put you off they are very friendly and just want to help you enjoy and explore your interests in more depth. The aim of all the u3a groups is to encourage members to Learn, Laugh and Live.

Listed below in the two tables are the groups that Guernsey currently runs with the days and times. There are further detailed sub-pages for all these groups that you can explore to help you decide what interests you. Just click on an individual group to find out more, including how to contact the convenors.

For your convenience the second table identifies in a tabular form by day and time when each group takes place to help you identify if there are any conflicts should you be interested in more than one group. If the group you are interested in shows WAITING LIST then contact the convenor of that group to register your interest. Where there is a waiting list we will try to put on a duplicate group.

If you feel there is no group that interests or one we are missing and you would be willing to offer your services as a group convenor then please contact the Groups Sub-committee.
