GROUP ACTIVITIES

In addition to the fortnightly general meeting there are several special interest Groups that gather separately. These may run over a long period of time, or flourish for a while and then disband when their members' needs have been met or numbers fall. Groups meet in local meeting rooms or member's houses at times and intervals to suit themselves. Sometimes to keep group sizes small, or to meet at different times, duplicate groups may form. A list of the current Groups is given below.

Also, Pub Lunches are arranged about every 6 weeks in local pubs and Outings (Coach Trips) are arranged 2 or 3 times a year. Pub Lunches and Outings will be advertised on the 'Events' page.

It is important to add that we are always on the lookout for potential new U3A activity groups. If you have a suggestion for a potential new group please let chairman Doug Nevell or vice-chairman Viv Chandler know. One possible course that had been proposed is Creative Writing and we ask any member who fancies themselves as a budding novelist, poet or short story writer to add their name to the list posted on the notice board at Thursday afternoon meetings.
