Hamble Valley

Groups

For the latest news on groups please click on the News button at the top of the screen.

Many Groups are now resuming activities in person. Some Groups are still Online/using Zoom. Technology has opened up new avenues and this is likely to continue permanently for some Groups. Please see the individual Groups Sections for more information.

U3A works on the principle of cooperative self help. So if you have an interest why not share it? It only takes two or three people with similar interests to form a group - and then others will join in! Everyone in the group helps each other and shares their knowledge whether it be learning or improving a language, researching your family tree or walking and enjoying nature together.

Groups are informal and friendly and the social element is very important. Programmes are worked out by mutual agreement amongst the group members. Some groups have a leader and convener; in others the roles are combined.

Numbers in groups are necessarily limited by space and other constraints. Unfortunately, this means that there may be waiting lists of people wishing to join some groups. When this happens, a new group can be formed. Otherwise, some groups establish an "occasional members list" where people on the list can join in where there is room at certain meetings.

If, as a member, you have a particular interest or expertise not currently represented amongst our groups why not contact us and discuss the possibility of joining like minded people and forming a new group.

If you would like to join an interest group you will first need to be a member of Hamble Valley U3A. You can then contact the Group Leader who will be in touch with you to discuss the matter.

If you wish to join a group or find out more about any group, please contact our Groups Coordinator
