Groups

Due to the CORONAVIRUS crisis all U3A meetings in person are currently suspended until further notice.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PLEASE NOTE that many groups are finding alternative ways to meet up in these interesting times!
Zoom talks, music online, discussions, quizzing, play reading - it’s still happening, just in a different way!

Zoom video Using Zoom

ZOOM is the application that has largely come to our rescue - gaining us the ability to use IT to contact each other and join in conversation. It’s easy to use, it’s available on every smart phone, PC, tablet and laptop in a way that uses just a click to join in. To join a ZOOM group ask the coordinator for an invitation. The invitation comes as an email with a link in the text. Tap on this and you get a dialogue to join the group. Turn on your microphone (if you want to speak) turn on you camera (if you want to be seen) and wait for the host to let you in. It helps if people talk only one at a time and you can view ‘speaker view’ (one person only) or ‘gallery view’ (see everyone).

Other Groups operate online through web-based competitions, or video recordings, or email. Check us out!

Stephanie Ellington Our Groups Coordinator, Stephanie Ellington, is the link between the groups and the Committee and can be contacted via the Contacts page, or email using the email symbol above. Group leaders and other members give their time voluntarily to plan and organise interest group activities. If any member wishes to start a new group please contact Stephanie or any member of the committee.

Please check with Group Coordinators or Stephanie Ellington as to whether and how groups are working currently.

Although GROUPS are only available to U3A members, non-U3A visitors are welcome to enjoy a trial 'taster' session at no charge by agreement with the appropriate Group Co-ordinator. There is a small charge for each group meeting, depending on the venue (£1.00 to £2.00).
