Below is our list of Interest Groups. All groups start afresh each September. Groups are self help and self funding and rely entirely on member participation. All group members must also be members of Havant U3A or another U3A with which Havant U3A has a reciprocal arrangement.

Click on a group to see its full details.

If you think of other Interest Groups we should run, especially if you might volunteer to coordinate it yourself, please contact the Groups Co-ordinator, John Meacham at johndmeacham@gmail.com or by telephone at 023 92 264676. The U3A movement offers plenty of advice, encouragement and training to group conveners.

Note.The Wales and the Welsh Group listed below is a POTENTIAL Group and will not be active until interested members join. To do this contact Chris Carter, email canddcarter@btinternet.com.
