Harborne & Edgbaston

Groups

The main activity of our U3A takes place within the forums of our Interest Groups which vary in both type and size.

The subjects covered and the frequency of these meetings are determined by the group members. Currently groups meet mainly fortnightly or monthly. The larger groups hold their meetings in a rented Church Hall with the smaller groups meeting in a member's home.

Group Coordinators
Each Interest Group is headed by a Group Coordinator who has an interest or expertise in the group's chosen subject. The coordinator is responsible for facilitating the activities of the group.

New Groups
These are formed when a need or interest is identified by members. So if you have an idea for a new group, or the group that you are interested in is full, contact the Groups Secretary (click on the CONTACT tab above) and they will promote your idea and do their best to help you get a group - or a second group - up and running.

The following is a list of our current interest groups. For more information on individual groups please follow the link below and then press the blue link on the group's page to contact the Group Coordinator.
