Ledbury & District

Ledbury u3a Interest Groups

Current Position

We run 45 or more Interest Groups. The Omicron variant delayed the return to normality, but we are gradually returning our usual busy selves with most groups now meeting.

We cater for a wide range of interests as shown in our Groups List below from which you can access each Group Page giving individual details.
Click the link to Groups Grid 2022 June to find out when Groups meet. There is a fee for attending a group. This is 20p if the group meets outdoors or in a members home, but more if it meets in the venue which has to be paid for by the group.

Please be patient while Groups re-establish themselves – details of their particular status and contact details will be available on their Group Page, including whether they can take new members.

Although some groups have found it difficult or imposible to resume operations, we have started a number of new groups and reformed others, including Railways, Welsh for Beginners, History of Art & Design, Opera and Family History. For details see the individual Group Pages.

To join a Group or find out more

Use the contact shown on the Group Page for that group. Sometimes the Group will be full, in which case the Group Leader will add you to the Group’s waiting list. If this is so - please also let the Groups Co-ordinator know. This helps us plan for future expansion of groups to meet demand.

For details of each group's activities, click on the appropriate group name in the grid below.

Please note that you need to join Ledbury u3a to become a member of a Group.

We don’t cater for your interest?

We are always thinking of new groups so if you cannot find the group for you, make your suggestions to our special Facilitator for New Groups via our Groups Co-Ordinator contact.
The latest suggestion is for a Ballet Group. Not to do pirouettes around the hall but to watch Ballets on DVD using the excellent equipment at the Methodist Church. Do make contact as above if you are interested.

Forming a new Group

Our u3a activities depend absolutely on volunteers – there are no paid tutors. For many groups it is very easy and takes little time, for others where there is more to do, like arranging outings, the work of a group leader may be shared.

Perhaps you could form your own group? For more information on being a group leader click here Abridged Group Leader Guidelines. To help you run your group meetings there is a certain amount of equipment available for groups, including CDs, - click on the link to see the list. For more information go to the Full Group Leader Guidelines which has additional links to documents on running a u3a group.
