Interest Groups

Some groups are still meeting using our ZOOM licence.

Please see the Diary on the Events tab for our full zoom schedule.

To avoid errors in passing verbal messages to a group leader it would be much appreciated if you could always contact them by e-mail and please include your telephone number in the message so we can also call you.

To send an enquiry about a group please click on the Birdlink in the group page and complete your message in the fields given. Please also include your telephone number in the message so we can also call you.

Please be aware the Government and Health guidance is changed regularly. There may be local restrictions in place and it is vital that you check on this and follow the guidance when planning to run or attend a group.

For full details please check the Third Age Trust website, which can be reached by clicking on u3a above right.

======================================================================================================================================

The usual way that the 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 one of our two coordinators of Interest Groups. You can contact them by clicking on the Group Co-ordinator on the Contacts page.

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