March

Groups

COVID-19 Restrictions. In general no Groups are meeting normally while the current restrictions are in force. However, some small Groups are beginning to meet outside and some are operating remotely using the internet. Details of these arrangements can be viewed on the relevant Group page.

For the latest guidance from the Third Age Trust for the resumption of Group meetings see the link on the right.

ATTENTION GROUP LEADERS. Please be informed that the Group Leaders Handbook is now available to read and/or download. Click on the link to open the document which is password protected. It is hoped to circulate printed copies once normal service is resumed.

The objective of these self-help groups is to pursue a common interest in pleasant company with all members of the group participating. No qualifications are required and expenses are kept to a minimum. Members of March U3A are entitled, subject to availability, to join any group. Where a group is full applicants will have their name put on a waiting list and, if numbers allow, an endeavour will be made to start a second group.

To join March U3A or enquire about an individual Group either make contact at the main monthly meeting or send an e-mail to the relevant person via our Contact page. Each Group Leader can be contacted directly by email from the individual Group page.

For detailed information of Groups Meeting Times see link above right.

Further information on all Group related matters can be obtained from the Groups Co-ordinator who can be contacted by email from the Contact page.
