Learning, not Lonely!
The Thanet U3A Interest Groups mostly meet in members' homes and the numbers are therefore limited. A small donation is sometimes made towards the cost of refreshments. It must be understood that members of groups must let their group leader know if they are unable to attend a meeting. If three meetings are missed without such consideration then their place will be forfeited.
Our groups are currently moving to our new membership system, to view groups in the new system please click - list of Groups
Once a group has been entered into our new Beacon system it instantly appears here: list of Groups
Groups are designated NEW until they have appeared in the Newsletter and in the following members email.
Some Groups are experimenting using the Beacon Calendar - see the events they have entered Group calendar

As well as groups, we also run SHORT COURSES twice a year, members are sent course booklets through the post and have to apply by the deadline. If a course is oversubscribed, names go into a ballot. Usually a small fee of £1- £4 per session is charged to cover postage, administration costs and room hire if necessary. For information on courses, please email Colin & Meg Harvey via the Contact Page.
For more information on any of the groups, or to find out how to start a new group, please message the Groups Co-ordinator via the Contact Page.
