Interest Groups are an integral part of the U3A experience, and members are entitled to join any group in which they are interested.
The Crouch End & District u3a is a co-operative venture: as such, its members are encouraged to share their knowledge and experience by offering to lead or facilitate groups.
Usually small groups meet in a member’s home, while premises may have to be sought for activities such as art and relaxation classes.
For those who wish to get out and about there are currently groups for exhibition and gallery visits, bird-watching, outings, and walks of various distances.
Please note that if you would like to partake in the activities of any group, you must first be a member of that group.
To join a group complete the contact form on the page of the group in which you are interested. The group page provides a description of aims and objectives, location and frequency of meetings or events
The contact form requires your name, email address, and membership number, and a message. Your message will be send to the Group Convener, who will reply with more specific details about the group and its programme as well as availability of places.
You will be required to show proof of membership when you attend a group activity for the first time.
Where a group meeting is held in someone’s home and the host provides refreshment, it is U3A convention to offer the host a small contribution to the cost. The current U3A policy is 50p.
If you would like to set up a Group, our New Groups organiser is on hand to provide practical advice and moral support. Please email email@example.com with details of your proposal.
