Where a group meeting is held in someone’s home and the host provides coffee, tea, biscuits etc, it is U3A convention to offer the host a small contribution to the cost. The current U3A policy is 50p.
We need your help to set up more groups. They happen only when people who volunteer to lead them. So, please, if you’d like just to discuss the possibility of convening a group, please complete the Groups Enquiry form at the bottom of this page.
Groups for which there’s much demand
•Eating out – pub lunches, or cafes/restaurants
•Exercise – pilates, yoga, walking football, petanque etc. We can perhaps find paid instructors for some of these, but the U3A ethos is to help each other
•Music – listening (both classical, opera and pop)
•Music – playing and singing
Popular enough to warrant a group
