Ledbury & District

Ledbury u3a Interest Groups

Current Position

We run 40 or more Interest Groups. As conditions ease, we are planning for the gradual return to normal of all groups, many of which have not met at all during the last 18 months or only by zoom.

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 Group Meetings - A Monthly Calendar to find out when Groups meet.

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

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. A possible new Group is Photography, initially taking all levels of photographer, but as the group evolves it may split into Beginners and Improvers or similar. One new Group in the process of getting underway is the Ambling Group. As some members are finding themselves less mobile than before and are keen to start again with a short amble in and around the Town centre followed by a coffee/chat stop (or not). The Newsletter contains several other suggestions.

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.
