Groups

Many activities have been suspended due to the Covoid 19 virus- Please contact your group leader for more details

All enquiries about joining groups should be directed at Kay Hatter. She maintains information about all the current vacancies and also manages any waiting lists. Her phone number and email address are in the monthly newsletter and on the Contact Page.

If you would just like to know more about a particular Group's activities she can put you in touch with the leader for a chat. Ruth is also the person to talk to if you are interested in forming a new group. We warmly welcome new ideas and we try to support anyone who is nervous about leading a group but would like to try. 

If you would like to start a group but you can't offer your home as a meeting place, you might consider booking a small room, with the cost shared between members of the Group. Ruth will be happy to advise.

As with most U3As, Groups basically finance their own activities and it is also usual to contribute a small amount towards refreshments at their meetings.

Occasionally a Group Leader may make application to the Committee for help with some special expenditure. This may or may not be successful.

Group members who do not attend meetings for some time AND do not keep the Group Leader informed will be removed from that group. This helps to keeps waiting lists to a minimum and also makes sure that everyone knows as soon as possible when new opportunities to join groups have arisen.
