Petersfield

Groups

Petersfield U3A organises more than 50 different interest groups covering a wide range of subjects.

Most of the meetings take place during the day time and are open to all members – although some groups are restricted in the number of people who can participate.

Groups meet at regular intervals weekly, fortnightly, monthly, etc. Some take place in the Petersfield Community Centre or at another appropriate site in the town but by far the majority meet in members’ houses. Each group has a convenor responsible for the overall organisation of the group but very often the emphasis is for members of the group themselves to take responsibility for deciding on the programme content and approach.

Click on the topic below to learn more about the range of groups and their topics, their meeting times and how to contact the convenor. If the group is full then a waiting list can be created so that another group can be formed. If the topic in which you are interested is not on the list then please register this with the committee member responsible for groups and every attempt will be made to try see if there is sufficient interest across the whole membership to start one.

Please note that some subjects below refer to a multiple number of U3A groups and more detailed information may be found by clicking the subject header.

Please note that those groups shown with a grey background are currently full
