Groups Update

Information for anyone interested in joining one or more of our many and varied groups.

Please be aware that you must first become a member of the U3A BEFORE attending any group. For details please contact the Membership Secretary. Current membership fee is £12 per year

This is to ensure that everyone is covered by insurance in case of any unforeseen/unfortunate situation, existing members must re-new their membership by 1st September or they are not entitles to attend groups or monthly meeting.

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

If you are interested in joining any of the interest groups, initially contact the group leader (details on the Groups insert with your In Touch News letter). Some of the popular groups may be full but it worth checking.

Contact our General Groups co-ordinator for general group enquiries.

If your group needs more members then the Groups Co-ordinator can help with a notice at the next meeting and an appeal on the site notice board. A full list of the U3A groups can be seen below.

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

There are several groups that are open to all and these are

Sunday Country Parks Walks

POSSIBLE NEW GROUPS

GROUPS AT WEEKENDS

It has been proposed that some members may be interested in joining ( or even running!) groups which would be active at weekends.

A suggestion has recently been put forward regarding the possibility of a group meeting up at the weekends, once a month, to play Table Skittles in a pub.

If you think this is a good idea and would like to take part, please contact the Groups Co-ordinator via the "Contact" section of the website.

If anybody has any suggestions for another weekend group contact groups co-ordinator.
