Saxon Shore (Herne Bay and Whitstable)

Saxon Shore Interest Groups

Please note, due to the Covid-19 virus, some groups are paused, some are meeting online and others are resuming in a limited, outdoors capacity. Please contact a specific group's Facilitator for clarification (Go to the group's web page and click on the Bluebird).

For latest advice with regard to the virus and activities, please click on Third Age Trust advice.

We have over 40 groups, and our intention is to keep groups as open as possible, so that if you are interested in a particular group, you will be accommodated, or a new one will start as soon as there are enough people on the list.

With this in mind, we need your help! We don’t charge for interest groups and we want everyone to be happily engaged in the activity of their choice – so please come forward, host a group, lead a walk, organise a lunch or a theatre outing! Our u3a will only be as lively and successful as its participants!

If you are already a member (if not, please see How to Join our u3a) and interested in joining one of our groups, please click on the relevant group page listed below and then click on the message icon (blue bird top right hand side of page) to send your enquiry.

If you have an idea for a group please send an email to Linda on ‘Group Enquiry’ via the Contact page.

We will always need help with a variety of jobs, and we have a volunteer organiser who will call on people on the list when needed.
