Interest Groups

The heart of any U3A is the interest group.  These are run by members with an enthusiasm for a subject, for members with a similar enthusiasm.  Prior knowledge of a subject is not required - this is learning for fun.

Once a full U3A member, joining a group is entirely optional but also membership of more than one group is common. Groups usually meet once or twice a month at a local venue or arrange trips of interest. Some groups may require extra funding for the venue, for trips or other incidental expenses.

OPEN GROUPS
These are open to all members and are a great way to meet people informally. Our lunch group and walking group (not-too-strenuous) are always popular.

INTEREST GROUPS
These are generally smaller in size and focus on more specific study areas. Click on the group name to find out more about its activities.

RUGs (Really Useful Groups)
In order to keep your U3A running there are many activities that are carried out behind the scenes, including Committee work. Extra support with these roles is always needed - many hands make light work. Nothing too onerous so why not offer your support.

For more information about joining a group or forming a new group please meet the Group Secretary over a cup of tea in the hall after the regular meetings
