Groups

Our interest groups are at the heart of our U3A. They provide an opportunity to learn and share knowledge as well as to meet new people, and to make new friends.

Members are free to join any group they like, as long as there is vacancy. Most of our groups are run on a regular weekly or monthly basis by members, either in their own homes or in local halls, though outdoors activity groups may gather at a specified meeting place outdoors.

Some groups meet in the evening, or do not always meet on the same day, and it is not possible for these variations to be listed individually in the timetable. If a group you are interested in does not show up on the timetable, check out the group's page, where you will find further details of dates and times.

Most groups take a summer break, most often doing the months of July and August, and resume activity a6 the start of the mew season in September. If you plan to attend a group's meeting during July or August, please contact the Groups Coordinator beforehand to check whether that group meets over the summer, using the online contact form (click on the Contacts button at the top of the page).

If you would like:

  • more information about a group,
  • to join a group,
  • to find out more about starting a new group if there are no vacancies in an existing group, or if you would like to offer a completely new subject or activity,

please contact the Groups Coordinator using the online contact form (click on the Contacts button at the top of the page).

You can also see full details of all our interest groups on a display board at each Open Meeting on the second Tuesday of each month, and the Group Coordinator will be in attendance to answer your questions in person. (click on the Events button at the top of the page for more information about Open Meetings).
