INTEREST GROUPS

The objective of these self-help groups is to pursue a common interest in friendly company with all members of the group participating. No qualifications are required, or are to be gained and expenses, where applicable, are kept to a minimum.

Groups are self-help and self-supporting, so any expenses are covered by that Group. We presently have around twenty five active groups, with some others seeking additional members and/or a co-ordinator to get "up and running."

If you are a Whittlesey U3A member and wish to attend one of the groups (perhaps initially just to observe what it's all about) then please CONTACT either our Groups Co-ordinator or the co-ordinator for the activity you wish to attend, or just turn up at an Open Meeting held on the third Thursday of the month at 2:00 pm at Childers, or send an e-mail via our contacts page. There is a noticeable lack of male members in most of our groups! Are they all too shy?????

New Groups:
If you are interested in a subject which is currently not running as a group please make this known to the Group Co-ordinator who will do his best to facilitate it.
New Groups - Co-ordinators!
We are always looking for opportunities to start up new groups especially where members show a keen interest.
BE ADVENTUROUS - have a chat with any of the existing interest group co-ordinators, all of whom are volunteers and you will find it’s not as daunting as you think!!!!

A "Creative Writing" group is now well established. Is this something you may like to explore? If so, again, please contact the Groups Organiser to register your interest.
