York

Groups

Arrangements during July 2020:

Some Groups are able to meet virtually (e.g. Zoom, WhatsApp etc), some are very actively in touch via email to share news or discussions, and some are able to meet outside following current advice on social distancing.

Any such active groups are highlighted YELLOW

These groups may be able to take new members - contact the group leader to discuss

*************************************************************

From 10th July to 1st August the Groups list is being updated

*************************************************************

Our Group Leaders take on the organisational role of a group.

Most group pages feature a pigeon logo which you can click on to send a message to the Group Leader. On mobile devices this logo may be at the bottom of the page.

Groups traditionally begin or renew their membership in August each year. New groups can begin at any time - perhaps because a couple of members chat about their interests and realise that others may be interested, too - it's that easy and a great way to make new friends, especially with several group members helping! That's what U3A is about - not leaving it to others, but each giving and sharing in whatever way we can. We can provide help and support to help get things going, contact the Groups Co-ordinator.

Scroll down for our current list of Interest Groups, open to York U3A members only. These appear in sections where the first letter gives a category:

AArt and ArchitectureHHistoryPPastimes, Food and Drink
CContemporary StudiesLLanguages including Latin and Sign LanguageRReligion, Cultures and Philosophy

GGames of SkillOOutdoor PursuitsWWriting, Literature, and Anthology

The group leaders can provide information on accessibility.

Proposed New Groups Seeking Interest Where members are offering to set up new groups the details will appear on the link page on the right hand side.
