Launceston

Interest Groups

The main activity in U3A occurs in small groups, either study or social. Most of the Groups that are currently active are listed below.

Groups usually meet in the daytime at a predetermined venue, could be a member's home or a car park, depending on the Group activity.

Group Leaders are volunteers, but each group should be self supporting if there are expenses incurred (materials, hall hire etc). A fee will be calculated and divided amongst members.

The latest updates and News from the National Subject Advisers are now available.

As you can see we are an active U3A with 33 groups.

If you have a particular skill you would like to share and would like to start a group please get in touch by email through the CONTACT page.

Contact telephone numbers for Group Leaders can be found in the members Network U3A Newsletter.

A number of Group Leaders can now be contacted directly by email, go to the CONTACT page and select the relevant Group to send your message or query.

A number of useful forms for Group Leaders reference and use have been downloaded from the U3A National website and can be found below:
