Southend on Sea

Groups

Southend-on-Sea currently has more than 30 Groups, some with just a few members - like Poets' Corner, with just five keen poets, and Painting For Pleasure, featuring a core of dedicated artists - and some with large and growing memberships, including Playreading (more men needed, please!), Line Dancing (full of energy), Photography and Weekenders.

One group is at the cutting edge of modern thought: Women in Society and History (WISH) is at the forefront of feminist discussion, exploring the life and times of remarkable women.

Groups Coordinator is Chris Hey.

If you want to join a group you must also be a member of the Southend U3A.
