Medway

Welcome to the Interest Groups page

The Teachers Learn and the Learners Teach

Medway U3A, like other U3As, is a “peer-to-peer” learning network, which draws upon the knowledge, experience and skills of its own members to organise and provide interest groups in accordance with the wishes of the membership.

Could you start a new Group?
We are always interested to receive new ideas for groups and would like to hear from anyone wishing to get a new group established. If you have an interest or an idea for a new group, but are unsure how to start, you can get assistance from the Groups Coordinator (currently vacant).

How to join a Group
From the Group Page of the group you wish to join send a message to the Group Organiser. You can also you can contact the Groups Co-ordinator at a monthly meeting.

Note:Please remember that to sign up for any of our interest groups you must be a member of Medway U3A and provide your Membership Number when making contact.

Popular Groups
In some cases, groups are so popular that they are over-subscribed. If you wish to join such a group please place your name on a waiting list by sending a message the Group Organiser or to the Groups Co-ordinator “from the group page”. When there is a sufficient number of people on the waiting list, a new group can be formed.

Unable to attend a Meeting?
As a matter of courtesy, if you are unable to attend a meeting, please let the Group Organiser know.
Likewise if you decide a group isn’t for you, please tell the Group Organiser.

Please Note: Members are responsible for informing the Group Organiser of any health or physical limitations which may affect their ability to attend or undertake any of the group's activities.

LIBRARIES: We have a great relationship with our local libraries and appreciate all that they do to support us. However, libraries are working to expand the range of activities and resources available to local residents and are trying to find what other service they could offer to residents aged 50 and over. They already do a lot but they have asked for any ideas we may have. If you do have any, please send them to Sarah Jenkin who is the Community Librarian. Her email address is Sarah Jenkin
