Newquay

Groups

Please note that due to Covid-19 all meetings were suspended until Government rules allowed them. However, during lockdown some meetings were held on Zoom. Walking groups are now operational again. Please see the Calendar page or the Events page for details of any events that have been scheduled.

Several Groups are restarting in September 2021, and some others need a new group leader before they can restart. Please check with group contacts to see if their events are now going ahead.

*****

Prior to Covid-19 we had 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.

Some groups meet weekly, some fortnightly, some monthly, some are ad hoc and some are temporarily on hold because we need a new leader. 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 the Groups Coordinator.
