Tynedale

Groups

Tynedale U3A has over 60 groups whose activities cover a broad spectrum of interests. Each group organises its own meeting time and venue. If it is necessary to hire a venue the cost is shared equally amongst its group members. Most groups meet for around two hours. You are welcome to try out a group by attending a free “taster” session before deciding to join. Please contact the convenor of the group to discuss and arrange your visit.
There are two Groups Liaison Secretaries, Margaret who supports Section 1 for Arts and Languages and Jane Section 2 for Sciences and Activities. In the list Margaret’s groups are indicated with a § and Jane's with a €.
Most Convenors, including the two Groups Liaison Secretaries, can be emailed by clicking on their names.
If you have an idea for a new group based on your interests or hobbies or something new you’d like to try, please contact a Groups Liaison Secretary as we are always delighted to explore new group possibilities.
If a group is full and you’re interested in the subject, please contact the appropriate Groups Liaison Secretary as we can create a waiting list or perhaps a new group. Full groups are indicated with *
Currently there are members waiting to participate in the following group activities: Cycling, Food, Film, Scottish Dancing, Mahjong, Military History, Recycling/Upcycling, Tap Dancing, Walking with Dogs, Wine Tasting, Wild Swimming, Table tennis, Play Reading and Long Walks.
During the Covid Pandemic many groups are meeting and sharing remotely via Zoom, WhatsApp or other applications.
