Lymington

Groups

During the pandemic, Interest Group meetings must of course comply with the latest government regulations for our region. We include a link to national u3a guidance in the right-hand column. Since government guidelines can change at short notice, please bear in mind that any advice given here may not be completely up to date. Also where an Outdoor Activity is concerned there is an Assessment Form for Group Leaders. Click on Link here or at top right COVID Assessment form Outdoor Activity
The number of participants in Groups is limited, in normal times, only by the space available in members’ houses. You therefore need to check whether there is a free place in a Group that you wish to join. But for popular activities, such as discussing Current Affairs or playing Mah-jong, we have set up several groups, to meet demand. If the Group that you are interested in joining is full, or if you have any ideas for a new Group, we’d be delighted to help you to set one up. Please get in touch with the Interest Groups Coordinator via the Contact page.

Note that only members of Lymington u3a can join one of our Interest Groups.

While many of our Groups are continuing their activities during the pandemic, mainly via Zoom, using licences that Lymington u3a has paid for, please note that some have been obliged to suspend their activities temporarily.
For more information, including contact details and the timing of meetings, click on the relevant Group name in the list below. This will take you to a page giving a short description of the group’s activities, together with a link to an enquiry form. Just fill in your name and e-mail address, then send your message to the group leader. Please bear in mind that all our leaders are volunteers, who may be away, ill or simply busy. If you receive no reply within a week or so, contact the Interest Groups Coordinator for more information, using our Contact page.
