South Manchester

GROUPS

Members of South Manchester U3A are able to join any of our Groups. We try to cater for members' interests and are open to suggestions regarding possible new Groups.

The Groups are normally led by a member on a shared learning basis because this gives everyone the chance to contribute.

We have several venues where we hold Group meetings and most are accessible by public transport.

Where a charge is made for Group attendance, it is kept to a minimum and normally just covers direct overheads.

If you are interested in joining any of these Groups, you will first need to join the U3A by pressing the contact button at the top of the page and completing the relevant boxes. Alternatively, you can attend one of our U3A General Meetings which are held at 2.00 pm at Emmanuel Church in Didsbury on the first Tuesday of every month. You are very welcome to just come and talk to us about the U3A.

Please note: Only paid-up members of South Manchester U3A may attend our interest groups more than once. However, we do allow 'taster' sessions when you may attend a group to see if it is for you before joining the U3A. These taster sessions are limited to 2 and should be different groups. You need to contact the group leader to see if there is room in the group before attending.

(Some group pages are still 'under construction' and awaiting information from group leaders).
