Wirksworth & District

Groups

So far we have 30 interest groups, each organised by a group coordinator.
A programme is usually set up with mutual agreement between the coordinator and all members.
The ethos of the U3A is to share learning so please come and share your skills and experiences with other like minded people.

The venue for meeting is adapted to the need of the group. Hiring a venue incurs costs and therefore each member is expected to contribute to this, usually between £1.50 and £2.00.

WANTED - NEW COORDINATORS
Some groups are in danger of becoming a victim of their own success as groups take on waiting lists.
This can change if a member comes forward and offers to coordinate a second group. A coordinator is the main contact for a group and works with all members to decide how the group is run. How much or how little they do is up to them.
If you are interested, please contact the coordinator by clicking on the bluebird at the top right hand corner of the appropriate page.

NEW GROUPS

A Performers Group has started.This is for anyone who enjoys performing or would like to gain confidence for performance in any medium. You may want to read a poem or story you like, read your own work, sing or play or act in an informal, supportive group.
Contact Sheila Harding for more details.

Poetry in Motion, a group to read and analyse a wide variety of poems and to try and consider what makes them work. If you are interested contact the coordinator via the bluebird on the web page.

A new group to play Pétanque/Boules has started. Anyone interested should contact Nick Coulson at njcoulson@gmail.com

If there is a particular group/s which interest you please click on the group/s and contact the group coordinator by clicking on the bluebird in the top right hand corner of the relevant page.

Find out more by attending a coffee morning – held on the first Wednesday of the month from 10.15am in the Memorial Hall, Wirksworth,
