Interest Groups

The usual way that U3A works is that members form their own interest group and run it themselves. It can be very rewarding working with other members to organise how the group runs and getting the programme off the ground.

If you, possibly with another member, have an idea, skill or talent for a new group and would like to take the initiative in starting it, please have a word with our coordinator of Interest Groups. You can contact her by clicking on the Group Co-ordinator on the Contacts page.

We have a growing membership and would welcome more Interest Groups.
