Macclesfield

Groups

Groups meet in various venues ranging from member's homes to local halls/rooms and are informal and friendly.

Members may join any group, provided that the group has places available.

Non members may enjoy a total of two taster sessions for free. To continue, they must then join the Macclesfield U3A.

There is generally no additional payment other than for field trips, materials and a small contribution towards refreshments. The level of contribution is agreed within each group. The cost of venue hire (Halls/Rooms etc) is included within the annual membership fee.

To find out more details of any group, click on the group within the table below. By selecting a group title you can open a page that gives more details about the group's activities, when and where they meet, contact details and an Email message link.

NEW GROUPS
We are always keen to introduce new groups. Any member who has a particular interest and feels they would like to share that interest with others should consider starting a group. Financial help can be given for an initial start up and existing group leaders can also provide advice.
Anyone considering this please contact the Group coordinator

Members form interest groups. All are volunteers, no-one is paid. No qualifications are sought or offered, enjoyment and learning for its own sake is the prime motive.
