A proposed New Group......

Trish is considering a new group - A bit of a romp through 21st century British women writers

She'll be looking at chick lit; romance; erotica and autobiography.

It will be on Zoom on the 2nd Thursday of the month probably from 2-3.30 pm.

If you are interested please click on Groups and then a) Popular women's writing and use the link to send Trish an email by by this Wednesday evening 13th Jan. The first ‘planning’ meeting will take place this Thursday (14th) at 1.00pm.

January 9th 2021 Update

A new group - The Crown - ZOOM group using the Netflix series of the same name is going to be looking into all aspects of the era shown within. People, actors, staging and the stories, which are our history, will all come under our spotlight. Interested? Click on Groups and the a) The Crown.

November 12th update

The Group list which follows, is in alphabetic sequence.
The a) at the start of the Group name, indicates that this group is 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.

Unfortunately some of the groups are already FULL and there may be a waiting list in place. However the majority of groups can accommodate additional interested folk.

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 through 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
