Three Brethren (Scottish Borders)

Interest Groups

Interest Groups are an integral feature of U3A. They comprise groups of members who meet together regularly (weekly, fortnightly or sometimes monthly), to study a subject of mutual interest. Obviously not much studying is done in the Lunch Groups! Often the meetings take place in members' homes. Each group has a Facilitator (not a 'leader' because the groups are group-led), who takes on the responsibility for organising the meetings or the outings and brings it all together. The Groups Coordinator is who you should contact; if you wish to start a new group; to get in touch with the facilitator for any group; or to be added to the waiting list for any FULL Group.

All the groups reflect the members' wishes and aim to satisfy the widest possible range of interests: educational, cultural, recreational, physical and social. The U3A, through the Third Age Trust offers many supportive learning resources, whatever your interests may be.

All this apart, you are of course going to meet new and interesting people.
