IMPORTANT CORONA VIRUS UPDATE

Based on Advice from the Government and the Third Age Trust, at the start of the pandemic, all normal Main Meetings and Group Activities were initially cancelled. Main meetings and some group activities were moved to Zoom where possible and appropriate. Plans are now being made to restart physical meetings where this is possible, legal and sensible

Whilst our Meetings and Activities are curtailed we can 'stay in touch' by reading and contributing to a new ad-hoc magazine called “KEEPING IN TOUCH”. Several edition have already been circulated. The magazine is edited by Diana Wilson who is the editor of 'KONTACT 2'. If you would like to submit an Article, Photo or Joke you can make contact with Diana by using the form below. You need to enter your name and email address, click on the Kontact 2 Editor box and enter your message in the box..

Since September 2020 the committee has arranged virtual Main Meetings using Zoom software. These will continue until normal Meetings can be resumed. The committee hopes this will take place in January 2022. The links to access the Zoom main meetings will continue to be emailed out to members close to the meeting dates. Details of the zoom meetings are given in the usual event table on the EVENTS page.

Some groups have recently managed to adapt and restart their normal meetings and activities to cope with the Corona virus

Spelthorne U3A K2 has almost 70 active groups covering 50 separate interests. The groups are listed below and where there is more than one group covering the same topic then this is indicated by a number appearing in brackets after the group name.

Details about a specific group may be found by clicking on the group name. Further details of contacts and meeting places are published in Kontact 2 the quarterly newsletter. Information about Groups with Vacancies and details of the Monthly Programme of Group Meetings can be found by following the links on the right of this page.

Around 25 groups are run jointly with our partners in Spelthorne U3A and these are indicated with a ** next to the name on the list. In order to join or remain in a group it is necessary to be a current SU3A or SU3A K2 member. Email contact with the Membership Secretary can be made via the CONTACT page.

All groups are self financing and non profit-making. Some groups have a small annual membership fee to cover incidental expenses, whilst others charge for attendance at each meeting. Many group meetings are held in member’s houses and costs are therefore minimal whilst other groups who need to use rented premises include these costs in their attendance charge.

The role of the Group Coordinator is to organise the setting up of new or additional groups.

Ideas for new groups are always welcomed and an opportunity given for the idea to be discussed and for the level of interest from existing K2 members to be assessed, and then help given with the setting up of the group. Recent new groups have included a Creative Crafting Group, Military History, Mah Jong and an Exploring London group which attracted 90 members in the first 2 months. If an Interest group reaches full capacity for whatever reason, then every effort is made to start an additional group.

Spelthorne U3A K2 has established close links with the Active Lifestyle programme run by Spelthorne Borough Council and information about the activities on offer can be obtained from the Group Coordinator, or from the Council website.

You can get in touch with the Group coordinator via the CONTACT page on this website to discuss any matter relating to Interest Groups.

New Groups are indicated by a yellow background

Groups with space for more members to join have a plain background

Groups without space for new members are indicated by a grey background
