Groups Coordinator - David Stevens 07552 618800

We currently have several interest groups covering a wide variety of subjects, meeting as required in various venues or at each others’ homes. These groups are organised by volunteers within Newquay U3A.

Please note that some groups meet weekly, some fortnightly, some monthly, some are ad hoc and some are temporarily on hold. Please click on the interest to see details. The “Events Calendar” link or "Calendar" tab will show you what’s on today and every day for the next month, giving contact details, venue and time.

It is essential that you contact the group leader before joining any group, so that they are expecting you. Please make sure you have your Newquay U3A membership number. Non members are welcome to a “taster” but if you want to continue attending meetings please email the Membership Secretary to join Newquay U3A.

If you have any queries about our groups or if you would like to volunteer to start a new interest group, please email David Stevens, the Groups Coordinator.
