Since we may pick-up our social lives again, some of the groups have re-started in line with the Government rules under the lockdown stages.   Please contact the Group Leader first. Do not just turn up as venues, days or times may have changed.  

Explore the list of groups below to see which one(s) you would like to join. Once you have found the group(s) you are interested in just click on the group leader’s name to contact them. I hope you find what you are looking for.

Groups are at the heart of the U3A. Participating in or leading a group is a great way of using your preferred pastime activity, learning new things or teaching others – while meeting new and interesting people with similar interests.

You will find the list is split into 3 sections as below so either scroll the page or click on the name to jump to a section.

I am always looking for new groups ideas and new group leaders. Please contact me with ideas or for further information on groups.
