Stokesley & District

Group leader

This page is intended to help Group Leaders and contains details about using Zoom to set up group meetings. It also contains links to various documents that you may find useful - see bottom of page.


Stokesley and District U3A have purchased a licence to allow unlimited use of Zoom for one group at a time. This means that meetings can be scheduled for as long as required.

A guide showing how to use Zoom for a Group Meeting can be found at the link below.

Zoom Guide for Group Leaders

Group Leaders should contact the webmaster by email to request a time slot. You will then be given details of how to access Zoom with login details. The sessions already booked are listed below.


It is important that you do not log in to Zoom at, or within 15 minutes, of any of the times that are scheduled for a meeting by another group. If you do this the meeting scheduled for that time will be terminated. All booked times are listed below.

It is also a good idea if at the end of the session you log out of Zoom especially if you want to use Zoom for a private session of your own. The Log Out button can usually be found in the settings part of the app

Please note that some groups are using personal licences and appear here with the word "personal licence" so those time slots are available using the U3A licence to other groups if required.
