Plympton

Groups

Plympton U3A offers a range of interest groups. See below for a list of our existing groups.

Meetings are held in a variety of locations, from members’ houses to local community pubs and halls. We try to keep the cost of running groups to a minimum but where the group meets in a pub you are encouraged to buy a drink.

Interest groups meet on a regular basis during the day and generally on the same day and at the same time. The exceptions to this are Theatre Visits, which vary according to performances available, Garden Visits, which depend on Garden opening times and dates, the Dining Group who change the day each month and the occasional Coach Trip.

Groups which go out, such as Stroll with a Camera, Short Walks and Garden Visits usually meet at a set place in Plympton in order to car share where possible.
You may attend any group once as a taster without joining our U3A but after that you will be expected to become a member.

Please look at the lists of interest groups and the timetable of when and where the various groups meet.
