Perth

Groups

The Perth U3A session begins in late August/ early September and follows a 4 week cycle, apart from a break over Christmas and New Year, until the end of April. Some groups meet more than once per 4 week cycle and some groups, such as the walking groups, continue to meet over the summer months.

There are some 60+ interest groups at present, as listed below. To find out more about an interest group or to ask to join it, click the link to the relevant group page, and use the pigeon icon to send a message to the leader. Before joining any groups, you should become a member of Perth U3A (see the Join us page).

New groups are formed as new interests arise and if existing groups become full. Most groups have a practical minimum and maximum membership. Members may join any group subject to the practical maximum limitation. If more members than the maximum want to join a group, a waiting list is created. An additional group may be formed once the minimum number is reached and if someone volunteers to lead or facilitate the group.

If you have any suggestions for new interest groups, or are interested in joining a group that is currently full, contact the Groups Coordinator using the pigeon post icon.

Group meeting dates for 2018-19 and reports summarising what each group did in the previous session are available from the links on this page.
