UPDATE ON GROUP ACTIVITIES

Taw U3A currently has approximately 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!

STOP PRESS:

Possible New Groups:

Kindle Readers - Although slightly odd-looking, this name may attract serious readers who might have invested in a Kindle. The suggestion would be to select a book each month and then discuss it, perhaps in a cafe or other such place.

Coffee Mugs & Teapots - A get together for a mid morning coffee, tea and a chat. Meeting in a cafe in Barnstaple town centre. This group will ALWAYS meet in Barnstaple town centre. Walk or use your Buss Pass, you don’t have to have a car to join in. If enough are interested we can arrange a meeting to decide when we will meet and choose our first cafe.

Anyone interested in joining a proposed new Group can use our Contact page to declare their interest.

If anyone is interested in floating the idea of a new Group, please get in touch with our 'Group Co-ordinator'

GROUP LIST All active Groups are shown below. New Groups are shown with a YELLOW backing while Groups that are at present full are shown with a GREY backing, but don't let this put you off applying as most full groups have a waiting list. To be put on the waiting list, contact the Group Leader by using our Contact page. For further information on a group, click on the Group name to open another page. Some Groups do not meet during school holiday periods.
