Groups (listed below - scroll down and click on the Group Name to view more details) 



When you join a U3A you will see the interesting range of activities in which you can engage. You may choose to join as many activities as you wish. No qualifications or special skills are needed.


Please contact the Groups Coordinator, Barbara Sargeant (email: if you are interested in joining and/or organising any new groups or require any information about any of the current groups.


Most activities take a few hours of your time each week or month. Suggestions are welcome from members for any groups not already listed. We enjoy a diverse variety of interest groups already, but, would always encourage anyone with a particular interest or skill to become a group Organiser, thereby sharing their knowledge with others.


For further information about each of the groups, and how to contact each group's Organiser, click on the Group Name.


From Your Groups Coordinators

It has been brought to our attention that some groups are shown as full and the offer of a waiting list is available. As this can mean someone waits for many months before a place becomes free, we are happy to help anyone who would like to start a second group. The second group may be able to follow the same programme as the first. We can advise with room hire, costs etc. and the group leader from the original group could help with relevant information. We have a second birdwatching group, a second play reading group and a second book reading group so as you can see it is possible. All members are invited to come forward with ideas. With a little help, most things are possible . Please get in touch with your ideas.

You can contact either Barbara Sargeant or Gill Taylor (Group support) via this website using the contacts page, or at one of our monthly General Meetings.
