Groups

Interest groups are the lifeblood of a successful u3a. If your interest is not already covered, let us know and we will help to find others willing to join you in creating a new group. The Potential New Groups link has current suggestions.

You can contact the Groups Organiser via this link - Groups.
Advice for Group Leaders can be found on the link to the right.
If you would like your group details to be amended please email hhdu3aweb@gmail.com
To submit a group report or request for our Facebook page please email hhdu3afb@gmail.com
Sunday Lunch Group 2 is looking for a leader. Please contact the Groups Organiser if you can help.

Our interest groups meet in members' homes or use Zoom at times, rent small halls, other venues or go on field trips. Group members cover the cost of using their venue and usually pay 30p towards any refreshments provided. Our current HHD handbook lists our interest groups information and the Group Leader's contact details.

To register with a group, please contact that group’s leader via that group's page.
If a group is oversubscribed, the members are encouraged to split up, with several members setting up a second group which will be assisted in establishing itself.
