Wirksworth & District

Groups

So far we have 24 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 ie numbers, any equipment/ space required.
For example; Some smaller groups such as the reading group are held in one anothers' home. The photography requires a larger space and projector and therefore hires the Town Hall.
Hiring a hall incurs costs and therefore each member is expected to contribute to this, usually between £1.50 and £2.00.

Most groups meet once a month but this can vary.
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,
or by contacting Membership Secretary please use the contact page
or by making direct contact with an interest group which attracts you.
