Most Worcester u3a group sessions which usually commenced in September 2021 are coming to the end of their 2021-22 programme in the next few weeks. However, a few groups cancelled meetings at the end of 2021 and start of 2022 and are now reinstating new dates to allow themselves to complete their planned series of sessions. It is important to check on the Groups Programme 2021-22 for the latest schedules of the groups. These schedules for the groups meetings can be downloaded from the 'Groups Programme 2021-22' link on the RHS of this page.

The 'end of year' Group Leaders meeting will take place at Warndon Hub on May 21st starting at 11:30am. Group Leaders should inform the Wu3a Groups Coordinator whether they will attend or not.

This year there is a short summer groups programme being made available to members. The list of groups and their schedule is on the RHS of this page highlighted as "Summer Groups Programme 2022" under the Links heading. By selecting the title the link will download the latest available schedule in a pdf form. If members wish to start a short summer group they will be able to have funding for up to 4 (2 hour) sessions made available to them from the Coxon legacy funding.

The Groups Fair will once again run, after a 2 year gap, on the 27th Aug at Nunnery Wood High School. The date falls on a bank holiday weekend but unfortunately, due to unavailability of sites which do not clash with major Worcester events, this can't be avoided. This venue is adjacent to the previous Sixth Form College Group Fair site. The Fair will take place from 10:30am to 12:00pm and it is hoped many groups will provide representatives at the Fair to inform potential new members about their group activities throughout the year and significantly increase our Wu3a membership size.

Group List

The Groups that became inactive in 2021 included 'Bridge Beginners', 'Italian Beginners', 'Italian Continuers', Transport & Machinery' and 'Ukelele'. Encouragingly, the Transport & Machinery group has become active again and is building a monthly meeting schedule. If anyone believes they could be a group leader for any of these inactive groups then they can be made active once again by contacting the Wu3a Groups Coordinator.

Groups that started since 2020 include 'History's People', 'French for Beginners', 'French for Beginners 2', 'Researching our History', 'Walks - 10miles+' and returning in 2021 was 'Mindfulness and Meditation'.

The only way to enrol for a group is by contacting the group leader in advance.

Clicking on a group's name in the table below will take you to their web page. Clicking on the Group Leader's name in their web page will enable you to send a message. Some leaders lead more than one group so please make sure you include the group's name in your message. Groups are alphabetical but go left right left right etc.

Groups will be shaded with a dark grey background when full. Even if a group is full, you can ask the leader to add you to their waiting list.

If you would like to start a new group please contact the Groups Coordinator
