Groups

Interest groups are a core part of the ethos of a U3A and one of our priorities is to ensure we have a wide range of successful groups available for members. The success of our groups is the direct result of the inspiration, leadership and efforts of our group leaders. The photograph shows them at a group leaders' meeting.

If you are interested in joining a particular group, click on the group's name below to find out further details. Click on the link to the group leader to send a message.

Some of our groups have a waiting list, but please do consider starting another similar group yourself. If you are interested in setting up or leading a new group, please contact Penny Holland by clicking Special Interest Groups.

We have published a Handbook for Group Leaders to help group leaders in setting up new groups and in running established ones.

Offering lifts to other U3A members when attending U3A activities

U3A members can offer lifts to other members and accept money towards petrol costs without compromising their car insurance policy provided that the driver only receives an appropriate proportion of the fuel cost from each passenger and not the total amount as this would then amount to a private hire fee and require “taxi” insurance cover.

Members are reminded that any incident involving the driving of the vehicle would be covered under their own motor insurance policy. This includes injury to passengers and members are advised to check that their insurance policy does cover such an eventuality.
