Groups

October 2021 update

Groups get Going again

Many groups are back to meeting and having their usual activities.
The Baptist Church Hall is a very safe space and is being actively used by a number of groups.
Physical activities such as Walking and cycling are all up and 'running'.
So DO check out what is available - come back and enjoy fellowship and fun.

New groups - Are you interested?

German Beginners

A new leader has stepped forward and this group is off and running again, Monday evenings, are you free?

September 21st - CLIMATE CHANGE

Many u3a's have started climate change groups and of course, we all know that we have to do something, but what.
To investigate what we can do and generally get involved, this new group will be right up your street.
Use the bluebird on the Climate Change group page to register your interest

August 2021 update

The Group list below is in alphabetic sequence.
The a) at the start of the Group name, indicates that this group is currently operating in some form.
The d) at the start of the name indicates that this group is not currently able to run in any suitable form and is currently dormant, with the hope of swift resurrection once the restrictions are lifted.

It is very important to contact the leader for the latest group information

Basic Group information

All groups are listed in the tables on this page. Some groups have their own individual timetables such as the bird watching group.
To join any group, contact the group leader first to ascertain the full details of meetings and any personal equipment required.

Our u3a is always willing to consider additional groups and welcome suggestions for a topic which we may not currently run, especially if you have an interest in getting the group 'going'.

If you cannot find what you are interested in, in West Bridgford, maybe one of the other u3a's does have something.
Select the link (Groups across Nottinghamshire) and see what is available.

Advertising at open meetings

To attract new members or to inform your current members of what is happening in your group, group leaders are invited to advertise via the PowerPoint rolling display. The display runs continuously at the start of the Open Meeting and is a useful source of information for people whilst they have a seat and refreshment.
Denis has taken on the responsibility for delivering the information attractively to excite interest.
Send him details to get in the display via the BLUE BIRD
