The membership of our U3A has grown considerably and we constantly strive to start up new Interest Groups. We have an abundance of expertise among our members. Please consider sharing old skills and interests to help us establish a new or additional group. Experienced Conveners are happy to share their expertise and offer advice. Please don't be shy, speak to any member of the Committee and we can alleviate any concerns you may have.

About U3A Interest Groups

Preston Park U3A Interest Groups are for Preston Park U3A Members only.
Non-members may only join a Group or sign up to join a Group when their Membership application and payment has been received and processed
- see the CONTACT page for how to contact the Membership Secretary, or click this link for more information ABOUT Preston Park U3A on line.

Members are required to complete a Membership Application Form when joining Preston Park U3A for the purpose of record keeping and contact information in case of an emergency. A link to a printed copy of this form is available on the Membership page.

Preston Park U3A Groups have a standard charge of 50p to cover minor costs. If it is necessary to hire a facility, or when other expenses such as photocopying are incurred, costs are shared between members of the Group. Members new to a Group must be prepared to volunteer their membership details.

Each Group has one or more Conveners who are volunteers from our membership. They are not necessarily experts on the subject or activity, but take general responsibility for the Group.

If a member is unable to attend a group meeting the Convener should be informed. If a member misses 2 consecutive meetings without prior explanation or subsequent apology, the Convener may assume that the member has left the group and offer the place to a member on the Waiting List.

If you are interested in joining a Group you may either add your name to the signing up lists available at our General Meetings or you may contact the Convener directly. If you are told no place is available please contact either of the Joint Interest Groups Co-Ordinators to have your name put on a waiting list as it may be possible to start an additional group.

Once you have joined a group, you are encouraged to keep in contact with your Group Convener(s) and also to remember that venues and times might need to be changed at short notice. The list of current Groups appears below.

If your group incurs authorised expenses a claim may be submitted to the treasurer. All claims to the treasurer must be completed on the relevant form and accompanied by matching documentation.
