Solihull Widney

Interest Groups

ALL MEETINGS IN HOUSES AND OTHER ENCLOSED SPACES ARE SUSPENDED AT PRESENT

Several Groups such as the Book, Photography, Science and Music Appreciation are holding "VIRTUAL MEETINGS" via Zoom and these have been very successful in maintaining the interest and enthusiasm of the members. There are also regular quizzes and Virtual Singing Groups.

Solihull-Widney U3A currently has over 30 Interest Groups which cover a wide range of subjects. These Groups come and go as the interest waxes and wanes, for example a new Recipe Sharing group has just come into being whilst the recorder group is struggling to find players.

Each Group has its own programme and meetings are held in suitable meeting places which can include members' homes. See relevant Activity Group Page for more details.

The Groups are self financing and there may be a nominal charge to cover expenses such as printing costs, refreshments or room hire.

The costs of Visits vary depending on distances involved, entrance fees etc. These are often arranged to suit members' interests, so please speak to a U3A member to discuss the possibility of starting new Groups or arranging new Visits.

Other Solihull U3As may welcome members from our U3A to join some of their Interest Groups' Activities if we do not cater for those activities ourselves. Virtual Computer Courses are run for Solihull Widney U3A and members of other U3As can join them. Equally some of our own Interest Groups may be able to welcome members from other U3As where there is room.

Details can be found on the Notice Board at Core Meetings. (see link to right)

If an Interest Group that you might want to join appears to be full please speak to the Deputy Chairman
