Horley & District

Groups

Groups or Activity Groups are an integral part of the U3A concept. They comprise groups of members who meet together regularly, either weekly, fortnightly or once a month to pursue a subject of mutual interest. Horley U3A members may attend a maximum of two group sessions as a guest before requesting to join.

Meeting venues differ according to the needs and size of the group: often in a member’s home, a local community room, or a pub. The cinema and dining groups meet at the cinema or restaurant. Some groups meet at various venues so that they can go on walks, birdwatching or visits.

Like all other U3As, we draw upon the enthusiasm, knowledge, experience and skills of our own members to organise and provide a wide variety of groups and activities. Thus reflecting the members’ interests and aiming to satisfy as wide a range as possible: educational, cultural, recreational, physical and social.

The U3A Trust offers many supportive learning resources to which all groups have access.

Below is a list of our current groups and by clicking on any group you will find more information about that group and the actual dates when it meets.

If you are interested in joining a group you should contact the leader of the group, or alternatively use the CONTACT page on the website to send a message the Groups Coordinator - Mary O’Neill.

For any general information or to start a new group please contact the Groups Coordinator - again by the method indicated above.

Our U3A members are free to join any number of interest groups, which are all self-financing, so there may be a small charge for incidental expenses or the cost of a venue. Group members should also make a contribution of 40p per meeting towards the host's costs in providing refreshments. Some groups organise outings to places of interest relevant to their subject.
