This group was started in response to a push by the National Research Sub-Committee of the Third Age Trust to encourage all types of research, which was seen as a core activity by the founders of the U3A.
We study topics of interest to the members and there is no limit to the type of research that can be undertaken. Some U3As have used their groups to obtain information about their own U3A such as the benefits on health and well-being felt by members. Others have looked at subjects of local interest such as a river, historic building or war memorial. The possibilities are endless and we welcome ideas for study.
A group work on its own or as part of a shared learning project (SLP) with a partner such as another U3A or local museum. The first SLP was in 2002 when the British Museum worked with a group of 12 from North London U3A.
The group meets on the afternoon of the third Tuesday of the month, usually at the home of the convenor but this is always confirmed beforehand.
