Leigh & District

Groups

Most of our Group activities are held at Leigh Miners Welfare Institute, unless otherwise stated.

If you're new to a group it is always advisable to ring the group facilitator (details provided on group pages) rather than just turn up for the first time, in case there's been a change of venue, time or cancellation for any reason. Please do not contact Leigh Miners directly for information, or turn up for a group meeting if you're not sure of the time, day etc.

Reciprocal Agreements
We have reciprocal agreements with both Wigan and Ashton-in-Makerfield u3as, which means our Leigh & District members can attend Ashton & Wigan activities without having to join either of those u3as (and vice-versa of course). You would still need to pay the relevant group session fees and any trip costs, but you should only need to prove you are a current member of Leigh & District u3a by showing your membership card. Please see the Ashton-in-Makerfield and Wigan web sites for more details about their activities.

Please see our Groups Calendar which may help in your planning.
