MONTHLY MEETINGS Suspended during current circumstances; see Newsletter for details of the ZOOM meetings

The Rye branch holds a general meeting for ALL members at the Rye Community Centre in Conduit Street at 2pm on the third Monday of every month, except July & August, with an interesting and varied programme of reports and talks on a wide range of subjects.
Everyone in our Groups and on our Committee is a volunteer and we welcome help in any form ~ it's a great way to get involved and to meet people.

Most GROUPS meet once a month. Some meet in members' houses and others are outdoor groups such as Bird Watching. The lunch group meets in a pub or restaurant. Each group agrees its own programme, agenda and venue,
(the host, co-ordinator or group leader should be advised of your attendance or absence)
**Photography** meetings are open to the public

NEW GROUPS

Starting a new group is easy. Anyone with a particular interest can form a group to cater for it, the CONTACT page, Groups Coordinator, allows you to email your idea for a new group

NB Short courses or lectures are arranged occasionally on subjects suggested by members

-----------------------------------------------------------

RECIPROCAL ARRANGEMENTS
We have arrangements with our neighbouring u3as, Hastings and Rother u3a, Tenterden u3a and Weald u3a whereby our members may join one of their groups if there is spare capacity without having to pay a subscription to join that U3A. They all have groups for interests that we don't cater for but vacancies available to us change over time as their own members must have priority.
Therefore, please use the websites Hastings & Rother u3a; Tenterden u3a; Weald u3a to view group subjects and use the links to the Groups Coordinator (Convenor in Hastings & Rother). They will give a contact email address for the group you are interested in.

TRANSPORT - For SUN meetings etc, if you want to arrange car sharing, taking others or offering seats, please contact John Still
and if you should travel in another member's car please do not forget to offer to assist with that expense
