eReader/Kindle Book, Improv and Pub Discussion groups are continuing on-line during the lockdown period by using Zoom video conferencing. Other groups are looking to re-open as soon as restrictions allow. Play Reading, for instance, are planning their first session of the year on 17th May.
Photos U-Share is not a group in the conventional sense, but a way of members sharing photos they take with others. Click the link below for more details.
We are working with other local U3As to provide groups that will be open to members from any of the U3As and provide a whole new range of learning opportunities. In Horley we have already been doing this to some extent as our Improv Group has, since resuming online, welcomed members from U3As in Sussex and Suffolk. Our Welsh Language group has been started on this basis.
Interest groups are at the heart of the U3A's activities and are run by the members for the members. You don't have to join a group. but it's an excellent way to make new friends and share interests with like-minded people.
In normal times, most groups meet once a month, usually in hired accommodation or in group members' homes. But some, such as Walking, Gardens, Out & About or Bird Watching, will meet at different venues each month.
All interest groups are self-financing. Depending on the activity, there may be additional charges to cover room hire, materials, refreshments (50p) and entry fees.
Details of current groups including meeting times and contact details of Group Leaders are shown below - click on the group name to view.
Members may join as many groups as they like (subject to availability of spaces). Occasionally, a group may have a waiting list, so it is advisable to contact the Group Leader to check if there is a space.
If you would like to start or suggest a new group, or would like further information about current groups, please send an email to the Groups Co-ordinator via the Contacts page.
Please show your current HORLEY & DISTRICT membership card when joining a group.
