Watford & District

Groups

There are about 50 Study Groups in the Watford & District U3A.

You may join as many Groups as you wish at no extra cost, except for a small contribution towards the host's costs for the refreshments that are usually served. Study Groups are held in members' homes or if the Group is too big, often in the lounges of sheltered housing complexes. As a new member it is good to try several groups and eventually you will find the ones that really are for you. These occasions give us all the chance to widen our horizons, improve our knowledge or our fitness, or to learn new skills. It affords an opportunity to meet old friends, and make many new ones.

You will find the latest Study Group information in the NEWSLETTER, but in the table below are listed the Study Groups currently available and when they meet. Regrettably some groups are full, but may hold a waiting list.

Some of the Group titles on this page are also links to more information about that Group.
