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.

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 to the group. Some groups may require extra funding for the venue, for trips or incidental expenses.

If a group is full either add your name to the waiting list (available at meetings) or work with the Groups Coordinator to create a new group and find a suitable venue. Contact the Groups Coordinator to register your interest in any of the groups.

The Lunch Club, Travel and Walking groups are open to all members. These are a great way to get to meet friends. Other groups may also arrange specialist trips and occasionally these are opened up to all members. Keep an eye open on the Events page for upcoming activities.

Other open groups for exercise, dance, song and the enjoyment of nature will help to keep you active and alert. What's not to like.
