Whittlesey & District

Groups

Our self-help groups exist to pursue a common interest; no qualifications are required, or are to be gained. Groups are self-supporting; expenses, where applicable, are kept to a minimum. We presently have around thirty active groups.
Membership of the U3A is a prerequisite for joining any group, but you are welcome to come along to one "taster" Open Meeting before joining and the first meeting of any group is also free of charge.

Members wishing to set up a new group should talk to the Groups Co-ordinator. Existing group leaders, all of whom are volunteers, will be happy to advise you on what's involved.

Prospective members should contact either our Groups Co-ordinator or the leader of the group you are interested in via our CONTACTS page. Or turn up at an Open Meeting held on the third Thursday of the month at 2:00 pm at Childers.

Click this link for a printable A-Z list of all groups, including meeting times and contact names.
Click this MEETING DAYS link for a printable listing of groups arranged by time of meetings.

Contact group co-ordinators before turning up in case your group is on a visit that week. Do this by filling in the form on our CONTACT page after selecting the person you wish to contact.
