Harrogate

Groups

The groups in Harrogate U3A are self financing so if members meet in homes there are probably no extra costs but when venues are hired the cost is met by the members of the group.

In the Group List below new groups are shown with a yellow background. Groups that are full are shown with a grey background.

Occasional outings to places of interest are organised by some groups and places may be available to other members and guests.

Harrogate telephone numbers are shown without the area code 01423, all other numbers are shown in full.

NB. Details are subject to change and some groups may be full and have a waiting list so contact the leader before attending.

GROUPS DISCONTINUED
Sadly a number of groups have had to be discontinued in 2017 owing to lack of support or inability to find new leaders.
Three of these are Lawn Bowls, Cycling and Textile Crafts. We are grateful to David Blyfield, Malcolm Margolis and Julie Clark for their hard work in introducing and running these groups for a number of years.

NEW GROUPS
We are always keen to introduce new groups so any member who has a particular interest and feels they would like to share that interest with others should consider starting a group.
Financial help can be given for an initial start up and existing group leaders can also provide advice.
Anyone considering this can contact the Group coordinator or the Harrogate U3A Chair Christine Hines
