Stanway in Colchester

Groups

ABOUT OUR GROUPS

Do take a look at the groups run by Stanway U3A to see if any might be of interest to you. Vacancies in all groups do occur from time to time, so please do enquire if you are interested in joining any of our groups, or you wish to find out more about the activity. Members can join as many groups as they wish if there are vacancies. In the table below, NEW groups, or groups with vacancies, are shown with a pale yellow background and FULL groups are shown with a pale grey background.

All of the Groups pages have a Bluebird contact button to the right of the page so that you can contact the leader of that group directly. Alternatively, you can use the CONTACT button along the top of the groups page to contact the Administration Secretary.

Stanway U3A and Colchester U3A have formed a close collaboration whereby we have access to each other's groups, subject to there being vacancies and there is no waiting list for that particular group. Members of either of these U3As can join interest groups of the other U3A without having to pay an additional membership subscription. Members of Stanway U3A can attend Lecture meetings of Colchester U3A and vice versa, but you will be asked to show your membership card so please take it with you. Please use the link in the side panel on this page to have a look at Colchester U3A groups and their Lecture Meetings.

Suggested New Groups

Anyone for cricket Would you like to occasionally watch Essex play cricket in Chelmsford and like some company? There are One Day matches at the end of May and the beginning of June, so get in touch. See June 2018 Newsletter.

Enquiries from members are interested in brushing up their command of the Greek Language. If you are not an absolute beginner nor totally fluent, then maybe you'd like to be involved. See Article in July 2018 Newsletter.

Aviation: There is much interest in this potential group following the entry in last months newsletter and will be in touch with those who have expressed an interest as soon as he can. The Group would meet on the first Monday of the month from 2pm to 3.30pm. There would be trips out to venues such as Duxford, Hendon, Stow Maries and many more. See July 2018 Newsletter.
