Tarporley & District

Interest Groups

Our groups are a key part of our U3A. The groups have a common theme where members can explore ideas, share knowledge and meet other like-minded friends. The table below shows our current groups. Click on a group to find out more.

Most groups meet at the Tarporley Community Centre (TCC). Others meet at outside venues eg member’s houses, other community halls or local pubs, and the walking groups obviously meet in the countryside.

All groups are independently organised with a convenor chosen to arrange the meetings. Groups are self-financing; for example, hiring and paying for rooms as appropriate. Please note, that some of our groups are very popular and may be full. There are waiting lists and where possible we will try to form a second group.

We are always looking to expand our range of activities and if you are interested in helping form a new group, then please let us know.

If you are a member of Tarporley and District U3A and would like to attend one of the groups, please contact our Interest Groups Co-ordinator using the Contacts page.

Covid-19 has obviously had a major impact on the way our groups have been operating, however the majority of our groups are now returning to face to face meetings with appropriate measures in place to minimise the Covid-19 risk.

As many of the group meetings involve physical activities both outdoor and indoor such as walking, country dancing and table tennis as well as Trips and Outings, members should be aware of their responsibilities. Please read this DISCLAIMER before participating in any such activity. In the unlikely event of an emergency to one of our members, it could be very helpful to the other members to have some contact details. We suggest members carry a form with these details. Click on FORM to download a suitable form, print it, fill in your details, and keep it with you.
