Groups

Groups are now restarting where possible, following the lifting of Coronavirus restrictions. Where meetings are held in a member's home, they may impose restrictions such as needing to wear a face covering. Groups that have not yet restarted are marked as "Awaiting restart".

========================================================================================================================

Please scroll down for a full list of groups. If you want to know more about a particular group, just click on its name to open that group's page, which has a description of the group plus location, access etc. To contact the leader of the group for more information, or to enquire about attending, click on the group leader's name, which will take you to a contact page where you may send your question by email. You may also include a telephone number for a response.

If you wish to attend any of our groups, please contact the Group Leader first, as space may be limited. Groups that are full have a grey background. You can still contact the leader if you would like to join them, and they will place you on a waiting list. Alternatively, if you would like to start another one with yourself as the leader, or have an idea for a new group that is not listed, send a message to our Group Contact. See the link on the right for ideas that have already been suggested.

Some meetings are held in member's homes, where disabled access and facilities may not be as you would expect in a public venue. If you have mobility or other special needs, please speak to the Group Leader, and they will do what they can to assist.

All individuals are expected to be able to take full responsibility for their own participation in u3a activities/events. The Third Age Trust has also extended its liability insurance policy to cover the attendance of a companion/carer if needed. Please speak to the Group Leader to arrange this if necessary.

Members pay an agreed contribution towards refreshments. Paid up members of any u3a may, with permission, attend on payment of £1, and visitors may attend up to 2 meetings (with Group Leader's permission) for a payment of £1 each time. Where a room is hired, costs are divided among the group. Members also pay for their own materials, for example, language study guides.

We encourage car sharing where appropriate, with a contribution to driver's costs.
