Taw

Groups

Taw U3A currently has 40 special interest Groups, with a total of about 70 meetings every month. Each Group has a Group leader who is also a member of Taw U3A. The leader, who may well have created the Group, has a special interest in their particular topic, but is not necessarily an expert. Group members are encouraged to share the knowledge they have acquired during their earlier lives, and pass this on so that we all learn from each other.

In each Group we encourage a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, where members can learn, develop and enjoy the company of like-minded people.

Please browse the list of our current Groups shown at the bottom of this page. For further information on a particular Group, a single left-click on the Group name will open another page with more details about them.

If you decide you would like to join a particular Group - apply to the Leader of that Group via our Contact page. Some Groups are very popular and you may not be able to join them immediately but do check with the Leader, as it may be possible for you to go on a waiting list.

Members wishing to start a new Group should contact our 'Group Co-ordinator', by using the form on our Contact page.

Don’t be shy; come and join us!

Possible New Groups:

Breakfast and Chat
Is anyone interested in joining a 'Breakfast and Chat' Group. We would meet on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 10:15am at Sandbanks Cafe Yelland. This is on the road to the old Power Station at Yelland. For those who wish to walk-down their Breakfast, the Cafe is only a short distance from the Tarka Trail. The first meeting will be on Wednesday 1st April. Anyone interested please contact David or Jill Baker.

Wine Group
Would you like to know more about wine?
Would you like to get the most out of the wine you buy?
Not sure what to buy or what is good value?
I buy what I like but would like to expand the range of wines I drink?
I would just like to learn more about wine in an informal and relaxed atmosphere?
If any of the above questions are something you would like the answer to why not join us for wine tasting. The wines will be a mix of the not so familiar and perhaps alternative versions of the familiar, each wine will be accompanied by full information and you will be taken through the process, by an experienced guide.
So, if you are interested why not join us. Contact the Leader to reserve your place (to do this use the 'Contact' page on this website.

Book Group - The existing Book Group is now full, but the number of enquiries indicate that there is possibly enough interest for a second Group. If anyone is keen to lead a second Book Group please use our 'Contact' page for further information.

Anyone interested in joining one of these proposed new Groups can use our Contact page to declare their interest.
